The Middle Bar Singers are undecided about giving Steve Heap a Engraved Tankard as a present,what do the other people who go to Sidmouth think.Especially after all the work that Steve did over the 20ish years of running Sidmouth under Mrs Casey's Music.

Yeah, he worked hard -whatever your personal views of steve (I reckon he's OK) Sidmouth would not have happened the way it has without his commitment.

I also believe Steve worked hard for the festival and deserves a gift from the whole festival goers not alone the MBS.

Whatever anyone might have to say against Mr Heap , IF he had not stepped into the breach a long time ago , there would probably not have been ANY Sidmouth Festival to worry about . I vote YES , give him the Tankard .

I am sure your absolutely right "leadfingers",i know most of the money for the tankard is coming from the MBS would anyone else put some money in the kitty or will it be left for the MBS to sort out.

I agree wholeheartedly that Steve's efforts deserve recognition. As to a tankard - anyone ever seen him with a drink in his hand? I seem to recall seeing him with half a shandy in the Dove one evening during the build up week about 10 years ago... Maybe there's a better gift? - but a tankard would be be approriate from the MBS and I'm sure he'd appreciate the sentiment.

More generally, given the largely unseen work Steve does outside Sidmouth, especially as secretary to the AFO, I'd think an MBE might be approriate. I'm sure he's contributed as much to folk music and dance as Messers Carthy and Thomas (and for much less thanks).

How the MBS show their appreciation to their friend and fellow Middle Bar Singer Steve Heap has got bugger all to do with mudcat.

I do, however, support those who suggest that the wider folk world should say thanks in a rather more substantial way.

TONY et al - Do it - Middle bar are often seen as the renegades at the festival lets go out on a limb again and as we often do do something fine and noble! - Other than singing with Gusto - I agree not a mudcat topic but as it is here it has my vote and lets all do it!

I agree with Tony. This matter is nobodies business but the Middle Bar, and certainly not a matter to be discussed in a public forum, where the potential recipient is know to be active.

If others want to do somoething, do it.

By the way, thanks for spoiling the surprise GUEST.

As a regular Mudcatter & Middle Bar Singer, it pains me that this subject is being discussed in this way. By all means have a general discussion on the Mudcat about whether Steve Heap did a good job or not or whether he should be presented with a mark of respect for his achievements but NOT what Mudcatters think about the MBSs doing so!
I do not believe any new threads should should be allowed to be introduced by anonymous GUESTs. If JoeClone does not feel able to kill it, please just let this thread die!

PS for fiddler: MBSs have our own yahoo group.

Well let's hope Steve is too busy to read this thread {Hi Steve}.
A bit like This is your life really tho' the surprise is in being thought worthy in the first place. Lets not get bogged down in all the ins and outs and point scoring. Simple fact is THE MIDDLE BAR SINGERS wanted to present Steve with a memento. We have the funds and it seems generally agreed amongs MBSers that we should go ahead. If anyone else wants to do a similar thing then that is up to them. As for seperate, extra donations for a tankard, that denies the established principle of the Middle Bar Kitty. It is a rolling sum topped up every year and has as open ended life span both backwards and forwards. It is designed for the doing of good works on behalf of all who have played any part at any time in the Middle Bar, as decided by "The Bench": in my opinion as resident EEjit on the Bench, The Steve Tankard is one such "good work" let's just on with it and return to discussions in the privacy of the MBS group.
