Spoiler, but one of the 'Absent Friends' toasted this year will be Fairport's Cropredy Convention itself.

The link to donations to The Teenage Cancer Trust is www.toast.org.uk

Just in case anybody is wondering what 'The Toast' is.

Well it started fifteen years ago, with members of TalkAwhile gathering at the bar to remember somebody we had lost that year and over the years this has become all inclusive, not only remembering people from the Cropredy family, but also those lost to individuals.

The toast is 'Absent Friends'.

This year has been especially hard and so the toast has to be done, even though we can't be there. So it will be in the official Fairport stream. There will be a short history of the tradition, but will finish with the toast. Everybody please be there and raise your glasses.


Those that should be thanked:
Field 7 Trev, who actually organised the Toast being added to the Fairport stream
David Hughes, who wrote and narrates the history of the Toast
Andy Leslie, who organised many of the photos
The Frog, who made sure this got progressed and has been the catalyst for so many years.
Jim, who will propose the toast
Nev Bull, who took turned the audio and images into a video
Lucy (Daughter of YaBB), who is running the donation page

Live message - forgive me for any spelling mistakes as Iím a bit tiddly. First live gig since February, and itís fabulous - Show of Hands drive in gig at Victoria Country Park, Southampton. Itís really well set up, with 150 cars, and designated area to the left of your car for chairs, picnics, etc (Iím not the driver, hence a few glasses of wine in the sunshine). Really good local singer (Johnny Moody) on stage at the moment, and it feels almost like a festival.  Iím really going to miss Cropredy this year, but this is a good way to still get that festival vibe (ish). Show of Hands soon, which will round off a really fun evening.
