Got back from Lechlade today, so just time for a quick turnaround of the caravan and it'll be time to set off again ! I believe that "The Fenners" will be visiting this year, and Karen & I hope that Dave F will join us for something very "Non-Folk" at this year's new "What The Folk " feature !! Quite a few "Lechladers" are coming,too,some for the first time,but sadly Merek,Dary,and Trefor W will be otherwise engaged at "The Crop Ready" thing !!

Oh what a brilliant weekend! Huge thanks to Dave and Kate for all their hard work in putting this together and keeping it running smoothly. Highlight for me was meeting Nick Dow on Saturday morning, though the concert (including Nick Dow) and singarounds were pretty good too. Am only sorry that it poured with rain just as the dance displays were supposed to begin outside the Bell.

Looking forward to next year's festival!

   Bubblyrat...Wild Flying Dove....Cats....Leadfingers....The Admiral....Mrs Admiral....Councllr...Bonecruncher...The Barden of England....Trayton....Skipy.....Herga Kitty....and some whose Cat names I know not, viz. Dave Fenner, Sarah Davis, and of course George Papavgeris.

Any more, please let me know !!

More than 50 people sang in the Friday evening singaround and it took 3 hours to get round the singers.

What is a festival? Well it's not the buildings, they are just bricks, or in the case of the scout hut somoe bits of wood. A festival is the people that attend it! Without the people & their voices there would no festival just empty buildings, so pat yourselves on the back, for you are the festival.
Please send me any photos that you took so that I can put them on facetube!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks to Dave and Kate for the best "Grove" ever.
It was great to see and hear Graham Metcalfe and Lucinda, over from Canada after a bit of a gap. Graham has grown considerably younger since his marriage. Well done Lucinda!
We heard a few comments about changes, over the weekend, but a good slogan for the Fest, should anybody want one, could be "Why Spoil Perfection"
