Dumpy and his Rusty Nuts - head banging, loud, fabulous band

   

Dumpy and Tom Kitching - Some say, musical history in the making

You put your right leg in, your right leg out

Sunday

A fairly slow, steady, casual start to the day, I wonder why

       

   

The crowd are itching to get going                        Dave, Guy and Connie, auctioneers

   

The Auction raised a magnificent 877.70 for this years GIG charities, Disabled Afloat Riverboat Trust and The Litchfield and Hatherton Canal Restoration Trust

Why are we waiting, Oh why are we waiting............Not any more the curry / Chinese has arrived

   

   

Quiz time, Terry Streeter at the mike...... and in the quiz set by Mr Millin and the lovely Margaret Millin, Will Chapman 'enjoys' a Beeky gherkin for arguing with the quizmaster. You had to be there!

   

Were then entertained by the highly talented Tom Kitching, superb

   

And joined by John Watson and Bruce Peckett

No I can stand up, honest, hic

Monday

   

                            Clear up time                          After a beautiful sunny weekend it rained overnight

And so Wendy and I and everybody else, gradually drifted away

Thanks everybody who came and helped. It was a very memorable GIG
