Cutthorpe 15th July 2007

Sunday lunch time and the band members arrive at Cutthorpe, the venue for the days activities. With the weather back to it's worst as the incessant rain attempted to wash away the entire field. Although the cricket ground had been ruled out for the gala a large marquee had been erected complete with bar and stage to accommodate the afternoons variety of entertainers and also all represented local organisation's fundraising stalls, which included the Musketeers social committee.

Aware that a musical routine had been arranged for later in lieu of the outdoor display, the big problem was how to prepare for the parade which the organisers insisted would go ahead in the teaming downpour, from the top of the village down to the bottom and returning to the 'Three Merry Lads' car park.

Fortunately, mine hosts from the pub came to the rescue allowing the band to prepare using their function room upstairs throughout the afternoon for changing purposes.

Already dripping wet before the parade started the band set off to rouse the village as they led the walking contingency and the floats through the driving rain, receiving a rousing welcome at the conclusion from the waiting crowd for the professional approach to this adversity and shortly after having to don the soggy outfits again to perform the stage show.

Once again another day to add to the previous occasions this season the band have come home wet and bedraggled, this must be something of a new record we could well do without.
