Dont forget the 20th Sept which will premier the Fairy Cave Quarry film. I have seen the preview and it is quite remarkable. I got a bit part in the film as did Mr O. Doc. Five days filming went into it. Mrs O. Doc will be around the the ice creams.

A scurrilous attempt to make us look old and senile. Nothing to do with me but I know the wicked people behind it.
