Preparations are well underway for West Fest 2013. Meanwhile...
So, a mud-filled, music-filled, crafts, food and inflatable fun-filled day...
... it went ahead and a lot of fun was had by all!
The only casualty was the Land Rover used to pull out all the other vehicles - finally gave up the ghost after working so hard - many thanks to RSM for supplying it and Paul Edmonds for driving it!
And many, many thanks to all the volunteers, stall holders, children's' inflatable supervisors, food suppliers and all the others who helped out.
A massive thanks to the musicians and and performers who really put on a great show, and to the sound-team, especially John and Chris who worked tirelessly to bring the performances to the masses.
... and of course to the committee for having the nerve to say 'yes' at the beginning of the week and pulling it off!
To the many worms - I hope you enjoyed the mud!
