Pete Shaw Is Back!Pete Shaw Is Back!

Thursday 26th January

We are very pleased to report that we have just recieved an email from Pete Shaw. Following the serious injury to his ankle last year and thus the cancellation of 33 concerts Pete is at last back gigging again.

He is still having physiotherapy and continues to have some restriction in the movement of his leg, however he is now fully mobile and most importantly able to play again.

We wish him the very best for his future work and just want to say "Break a leg Pete".... errr, yes well, perhaps we'd better not!

For more information about Pete see his OrganFax web page

The "event" lasted most of the day to the delight (well most of them!) of passers-by who joined in with some of the songs and dances.
