It was great to meet you again Bob and attend your workshop s and steady tunes sessions, you are an inspiration to us melodeon novices,  delighted to meet Les, chuffed to be able to start a tune someone else requested but couldn't start ! (Newcastle)
Thank you for all the preparation you put into your workshop s.
Looking forward to next year,  John.  (Castagnari Lily,  failed Caddam Wood and Wakefield Hunt requester !)

It was good to meet you, Les and John (and others), and I am glad you enjoyed the workshops and sessions. It was also good to see some melnetters in the Loose Knit Band sessions in the Rugby Club, which I thought were better than ever this year. It was a shame that we couldn't find a more convenient time for the Melnet get-together. A few people dropped in for a chat hear and there, so thank you to those people for coming. Perhaps we'll be able to arrange something convenient for more people next year.

Penny and I had to dash off earlier than intended, leaving on Friday morning rather than Saturday because Penny was feeling unwell. Sorry that we didn't manage to say goodbye to some of our friends. Three miles out of Sidmouth we received a phone call to say that Penny's mother had been knocked over by a car and was in the James Cook Hospital in Middlesbrough. Of course, when you are trying to get somewhere quickly, you meet every traffic delay imaginable and so it proved in this case. The journey took eleven hours rather than the usual six and a half hours!

The good news is that Penny's mother is in no danger, but she will have to stay in hospital for a few more days.

Thanks Bob.  Sorry to hear your news.  I hope Penny and her mother are soon better.  Blimey - I thought 8 hours back to Essex was bad enough!  Looking forward to meeting you again. All the best!

Hi John,

Nice to meet you too.

It was funny - I had quite a week of people staring at me and then coming over and saying "Are you Daddy Long Les?".  Lovely to meet so many melnetters and YouTubers face to face.
