That's it all done for this year. It was pretty good. Shame it was so showery yesterday for the finale at the bandstand.

There's another event on there on 11th July. A Trip Through The Twenties. Guess whose photo they're using to promote it:

What a brilliant picture, Pat. Great to hear the bandstand is back in use.....

Ha ha. It's a laugh. Got a shock when I saw it. The people behind the Bandstand were at the Gibson Street Gala and they took it then.

It's fabulous about the band stand and it's looking great. All we need is some sunshine. The forecast is looking better.
