Local Events for Local People!

Or some Events & Competitions (not to be missed in 2017).

No sooner than Tim Porter finishes begging me to publicise his events than the West Country is demanding that our movement advertises their shin-digs. A warm welcome is assured, I met some of these reprobates nearly thirty years ago and they never fail to amuse!

The Red Tide hits the West (country)
