Can I say that I have always had the highest respect for the Waterson-Carthy family for their work in putting our music back into circulation.
I have an even higher respect for them being decent folk who are not above cleaning up after other people.
At the last National Festival I was in the ladies' loo ( behind a closed door at the time) when I heard Norma and Eliza enter the room. Norma said - "What a mess someone's left". The counter tops were covered in tissues, paper towels and large puddles of water.
When I came out of the cubicle I saw Norma and Eliza mopping down the place with paper towels and making the place more like you would expect at home.
They are my sort of people. Be proud of your MBE Eliza, I am proud of you and your mum & dad.
