Calling all Yorkies/Northern Monkeys! For some odd reason, York City Council is holding AFD next Saturday. It's on the Knavesmire (York Races) between 1600-2130hrs. It's emphasis is less on the formal parade type gig, and more on the entertainment with military and civvy bands, singers etc etc. They seem to have realised that another working weekend is not the sort of celebration that HM Forces would want....! There is an entry fee, even to service-people, but I'm assured that the charge is to help with the costs of next years' event as they won't get any extra funding for it. Here's a link: http://www.yorkfestivals.com/metadot/index.pl?id=4409 I'll be the rockape standing awkwardly next to a replica bleeding Spitfire that has become the bane of my life this summer. Come and exchange insults/pleasantries/"barrier up" jokes.
