Phew!

Thanks for the update and the tip, Peter. Let us hope that none of us has to call on such insurance.

Re: Freddy Beard FACI

Freddy's death was a shock. She was, among all the things you mention, also a regular UNICA visitor. She could not come this year, but was being positive about coming to UNICA in 2019. She was always a positive presence and ever-willing to help in any way. Jan and I send our sympathy to her family a...

I met Martin and Keri as they signed in ... I knew his name from proof-reading the web pages about the results and the festival timetable. You are absolutely right about THE POLE LINER, whose dry humour tickled me greatly. I am delighted to say he has kindly agreed to trim NUISANCE down to one minut...

Damned unanimity! It was a great weekend, well organised and run - thanks to everyone who worked behind the scenes.
