Community spirit!

Filed Under :


A big thankyou to those who have rallied round.

I'll get to the point. Our drummers very ill. The outlook is bright, but he has a long recovery ahead. in the last few weeks, weve been overwelmed by the support not just from friends, but from other bands. no less than three drummers are helping us out.theyre all busy. all in other bands, but theyre there for us. means a lot.two other drummers have also offered their services til our mate and drummer feels well enough to return. We all appreciate your help and support guys. The dunkirk spirit lives on!

Thanks lads. It makes you think definately. Him getting well is what matters. but its tough to just carry on gigging as normal. but thats what he wants us to do. the deps are offering to help when possible til hes able to come back. puts all the petty stuff that sometimes happens on here into perspective.
