Thanks to those of you who supported Maggie's Two Pound Lucky Dip, by donating gifts and by dipping. This was in aid of Maggie's forthcoming trip to Bosnia to provide therapy for war victims, as organised by the Healing Hands Network. We have raised 298 of our lovely British Pounds. Thanks to you all. (We'll be having another go at Hull Shanty Festival this weekend.)

This was about the 9th or 10th time Ive been to Whitby and this year was the most enjoyable,don't understand some people who seam to complain all the time, I met many old friends made many more new friends, listened to lots of wonderfull singing, exchanged songs - all in one of the nicest towns in England, and the regatta entertainment was an added bonus. Special regards to people I met in the First in Last out pub, hope to see you all next year.

Enjoyed our 3 days at Whitby immensely. From postings we obviously missed many good bits. That's the trouble with festivals - you can't be everywhere at once. Many thanks to hosts Mo & Joe, Mick McGarry & Ray Padgett. Not to mention this year's directors. (Sorry, promised I wouldn't mention them!)

The Wilsons patter goes from strength to strength

I think Tom is nearly on a par with Billy Connolly (honest)

A beer fuelled full Wilsonians' Choir can wreck eardrums!

I left just before Union Miners

I have just seen folk America on tv and have just realised that Tom Paley was in the company of late night Celtic revellers in the Resolution ~ well I never

haha Wyrd Sister! I think there is a reason they normally shove us somewhere in the middle-that way they can keep an eye on us! There was only one year they told us to tack on the back about 5yrs ago-and that was because we turned up uninvited and just hijacked the parade! One of the dance sides let us in the middle and we have always been invited back every year since-in fact one year they put us near the front and (perhaps stupidly) asked us to carry the children's garland...they have never repeated that request though...might have had something to do with the fact we broke it half way round and one of the stewards had to quickly run to the shop and return with a mop handle to shove in the middle before it fell apart! Actually its a wonder we haven't been permanently banned from the parade yet haha!

I was right at the back in the bar area ... so the chatting at the bar drowned a bit of the chat... but they were on stunningly good form, and seemed to be having a whale of a time, which transmitted well, even if the younger clan at the back were drowning out some of the chat. Looking forward to their visit down south later in the year !! :-)

Did anyone else see the Wilsons at the football club on Sunday night, in the traditional night out concert? Their singing was fantastic and the banter in between songs was one of the funniest things I've seen or heard for years. What a Tonic they are.

basically we were being our normal exuberant selves and singing loudly and skipping down the road, basically making sure the kids were enjoying themselves (but I had to add we werent being over the top-even Bob Pegg was joining in) and while most of the dance team in front thought it was funny (especially when the fairies starting pretending to stratch at their backs singing 'Dont look back we're right behind you', like they did to the Magaret character in the show), one of them turned round and told them to shut up and behave or words to that effect (I don't think most of the children heard thankfully-they carried on regardless-the only reason I knew was because Holly told me they had said it to her. Thankfully in true CiP spirit she told me it just made her sing even louder to wind him up haha)

most of the parade said they enjoyed us being there though, even giving us a performing spot at the bandstand this year which was nice, and the kids all enjoyed it which is the main thing and it hasnt put us off-we will be there again next year without fail :D

I actually have one or two photos (including a good picture of your son in costume) from the parade this year and one from Asipatle (sp?) and the Stoor Worm from 2007 that have your children on them (though the latter aren't the best pictures as my mum took those! haha) and would be willing to send you them via email if you would like?

Huge thanks to all the organisers, stewards and camp-site teams from Spare Parts. It was our first Whitby and we had a terrific time. I was particularly charmed by how friendly, thougtful and reasonable everyone was throughout the week.

The ballad sessions were splendid. I managed six hours of sex and death; it would have been more but for the stern demands of band practice.

(If anyone's got any feedback on our concertina sessions, please PM me or Bryan (The Snail) Creer.)

Tootle pip,

Over £1,700 was raised by the maritime sessions in the Endeavour for the Whitby Lifeboat. An all time record.

So much to do, so much to see, so many people to hug and kiss. I had a fab time thanks to too many people to mention.
Roll on next year...

On behalf of the stewards on the Rugby Club may I say a big 'THANK YOU' to all of you on our site. Other than a few hiccups which we tried to put right as soon as possible (sorry to the gents who had cold showers) it was your help in keep the place tidy which made our jobs a lot easier.

We will be running the same system of 'enclaves' with each team having it's own area next year as you seemed to like it. It certainly made it easier to direct people as they arrived. Quick plea - get your bagman to send the correct info as to numbers/what you are staying in as soon as possible so you get the right amount of space.

We will also be enforcing the NO DOGS rule along with the no wheels on the playing area. This is not our choice but Scarborough Council's so we can do nothing about it.

Thanks also go to Peter (club steward) for putting up with us and the amazing butties for breakfast - not to be missed!

I had a good festival and hope you all did too.

Thanks again
Tig

had a great time as usual this year! the only shame was the lack of children at each of the childrens workshops. we didnt have that many over in children in performance this year- but then again i have to point out the ones we did have were FAB and did an amazing job performing The Changeling on thursday if anyone saw it (and causing mayhem at the back of the final parade on the friday too!).

there didnt seem to be as many dance sides either this year...or maybe that was just me who thought that?

But thank you to the organisers for doing such a good job and I will see you all next year :)

Great festival. We enjoyed some good sessions and concerts as well as the dancing that drew us to Whitby 25 years ago and keeps us coming back.
The dance bands were in sparkling good form, a pleasure to listen to. Some of my favourites callers were there but there seemed to be less variety than usual. Actually the dancing wasn't the high spot this year. It was too hot upstairs in the Spa and the floor too hard downstairs (or maybe we are just getting too old).
We'll be back for more next year, and maybe enjoy some of the things we didn't have time for this year.

Just a bit more morris info; Due to the Regatta being on at the same time, there will be no parade on Saturday as in past years and no dancing at the Bandstand until Monday. On Sunday afternoon at around 3:45 there is a Dance Concert featuring all the guest teams at the Spa. There will be dance spots at Scoresby and Cat Cooks as usual.
