Spencer found us at Morley St George's Day, and invited us to Yeadon. Mixed emotions here for those of our number who are local [ie Lynn and Anne], and indeed it is more difficult to play in front of your own family, school, town, whatever, than to play in front of strangers. I do get that.
Anyway, because Spencer had actually seen us play, I knew that he didn't just want a steelband; he wanted East Steel. And that was enough for us!
We were me, Bex, Vicky, Lynn, Wendy, Yi Bai, Jeanette, Pippa, Kirsty, Sophie, Anne, Wanda. Surprise guest was Peter; surprised guest in fact!
We were treated with such consideration. After a brief skirmish with the ice-cream van about where I couldn't park my van [ever thus!], Spencer found us and directed me through a gap in the fence which looked like it was just big enough for a double buggy. Then we were able to park where we played. Loading was dream. In fact the van was a shelter for Wanda and hubby during the interval. And we definitely needed shelter. We covered up the pans from the hot sun as you can see.
Yeadon Carnival. Loved it.
