Baker Street !!

Hi All

Had a really great meeting this morning with a friend called Mark he is a singer and is releasing a single of a song that he wrote entitled "Mother"as he lost his Mum to cancer last year, he is going to perform it at the Candle of Hope Ceremony at the Tedburn Relay July 4th. What is also fab is that the saxophonist who featured on Gerry Raffetys' Baker street will be acompanying him .WOW !!!!! Im so excited what a great honor for us to get that !
Lots of stuff to organise but its coming together and looks like it is going to be a great 24hours !!
Looking for any stall holders that want a pitch to sell their wares to come forward to.
Its only 14 weeks away so time to start pulling it all together !

Let it be a sunny July !!


Been snowed in for a couple of days but at least its made me do some work on the Relay event. There is alot already in place but its now time for me to get as many teams on board to make ita huge success .We have some great local live bands booked and Exeter Legends football team playing a match on the day at Tedburn for us. I need a lorry for the bands to play on so if there is anyone out there that can help ? The theme thisyear is "America" as we are hosting the event on the 4th of July so any baton twirlers/cheer leaders out there too ?

Part of Relay fundraising is a Charity Golf day July 3rd at FingleGlen Golf course ,again we need teams and sponsors for prizes any help would be gratefully recieved.Price per team of 4 is £160 this includes 18 holesof golf stableford format and 3 course meal afterwards.

I have ordered the sunshine for that weekend maybe we will be blessed with it as the last 3 Relays have all been cold wet and windy !!

i will keep you posted with things as they happen !

Time to Blog


How bad have I been on my updates !!!! Well January is nearly gone thank goodness what a wet, miserable windy month its been. Cant wait for the spring and some warmth on my bones .
I have my 6 monthly cancer check up on Tuesday,another milestone out the way , nearly 4 years clear and feeling fit and well .
Starting to knuckle down to the Tedburn relay business now lots to organise but i am lucky i have people willing to help with every aspect of the huge task.
Also we have the Golf Day on July 3rd ,day before Relay so if anyone out there would like to put a team of 4 in give me a shout.
Had a phone call from a 70 year old lady in the village asking me to pop around to see her.What a wonderful surprise I had , she has made the most beautiful patchwork quilt.A work of art !!Her son had been very ill so whilst he was recovering she made the quilt which she is donating to relay for us to auction. i will try and get my dear friend sandhy to take a picture and post it on here if anyone would like to make a bid for it .
I will keep you all posted with the progress reports on Relay and lets all pray for some nice weather !
