It appears that those members of Buggy Club who are doing the food are having some sort of informal competition as to who can produce the best eatables for the historical talk on Tuesday March 26th - I am reliably informed in addition to the expected home-made cakes and biscuits, there will be pies, chips and black peas. Our esteemed pizza maker has been dissuaded from making one of her pilchard pizzas though.

I'd be tempted not to have any tea before coming to this, as it looks like a decent meal can be had!

Mr Buggyite....

I was looking forward to attending this, now turns out i cant due to working away.... You may remember I was always looking for images of old Buggy especially Rosey Bank etc

Do you have any contact details for Chris Simpson, or could you pass my email to him etc?...

many thanks

Just a reminder that this is on tomorrow evening (Tuesday).

Moogie, I will ask Chris if he minds me providing you with his email address.
Not via this medium, as its too "public" - maybe through your door.


Anyway, can't this weather provide you with a reason for working at home on Tuesday?

A good time was had by all. Thanks to Buggyite and his team for organising it and thanks to Chris for a damn good show. The pictures were brilliant, his commentary erudite but best of all was his eagerness to involve the audience and let them contribute. Can't wait for his next show in Whaley
The optimist believes that Whaley Bridge is the best place in the world to live. The pessimist fears he might be correct.

Was only able to stay for about ten minutes, struggled getting back from work and have family staying, but what I saw seemed very interesting.  A massive thank you to all involved.
