Huggy Leaver, Paul Thomas, Eddie Mays, Dave Blackman, Ken Copsey. 

Pauline Sims….Nice photo – all looking very serious!

Pete Fairless….All looking very young!

Ken Copsey… I think you’ll find it is not the real Eddie Mays in this picture but a ventriloquists dummy being operated by Dave! This was taken at the offices of The Hastings Observer.

One Inch Badge press release… * IMPORTANT EVENT INFORMATION * Due to a number of factors including where the sun sets, PA sound firing and technical logistics onsite we are having the stage face out to sea for these shows as opposed to towards the beach. We wanted to let everyone know this in advance to avoid disappointment, as we’re aware many people are arranging meeting on the beach to watch from there and sadly with the stage facing the other way, placed at the rear of the visitors centre, it means you won’t be able to see the stage or hear clearly from the beach.

Andre Martin… Well done to let people know in advance.
