There are three definite signs of ageing
1. The policemen look younger
2. Festival and Transport Day comes round quicker each year.
3. I can't remember what the third one was ..
We feel like we are really well on top of Transport Day (June 28)this year. Word seems to have got around about last year's success and every aspect of the show was filled by the end of February.. But somehow there's still loads to do and some things we want to do better this year. Most of that is about having a great team of volunteers to help thing run smoothly. We reckoned we need 160 people - most of them working no more than 3 hours so that they can enjoy the show too. It seemed like an impossible number but amazingly we are up to 120. Could you be one of the other 40 ? It will be fun (honest!) and we give a free family ticket to each volunteer. Just go to the website www.lymmtransport.org.uk, call Trish on 01925-751646 or drop in at the festival box-office on Pepper St on Saturday 23rd to put your name down .
Yes that's right the FESTIVAL BOX-OFFICE will be open for the first time on Saturday May 23rd. you can get Discount Transport Day tickets and pick up a FREE Transport Day programme that tells you everything that's happening.
Let me also declare a personal interest in Beverley "Promise Me" Craven in Concert on Tuesday June 23rd featuring our own Lymm Big Sing Choir I can "Promise You" that this is going to be a sell out ( nearly 2/3rds full already) so be smart and get your ticket in the next few days . If you miss out on that then lots of other good stuff too - Comedian Jo Caulfield, Agony Aunt Virginia Ironside and of course Terry Waite. plus a host of local talent and events like Open Gardens and Art in The Garden. Festival really is a remarkable phenomenon. Check it all out at www.lymmfestival.org.uk or if you haven't had a programme yet pick one up at the Village Hall on Saturday.
Now what was I going to do next ? I had it written down somewhere ..
