Cath George Clarke: An Apology (84* d) RE: George Clarke: An Apology 11 May 11

I wasn't going to get involved in this but Chris you are wrong - there were no more Open Mics than there have been in the past, the pubs have always had bands in and the only thing we were short of was a dedicated Singaround venue due to a spat with the Postcard after last year.
The move of the Elephant session into the bar was done by the landlady and I'm led to believe was not under the control of George or anyone else. Yes he had taken his PA along but that was in an attempt to involve the 'locals' who inhabit the bar as it was thought a closed door policy in the pool room wouldn't work.
I did manage to get round most of the pubs this year and I found a fair number of sessions/singings going on in the Nook, outside the Bridge and I'm sure they were in other places.
I don't know who these unhappy 'folkies' were who were wandering the streets (did you try the Shoulder?) but I certainly didn't meet them and at 5 per night for the campsite I don't think they have much to complain about.
You have been invited before to join the committee and do your share of the work and if you feel that strongly then come along and do it.
