After concern was expressed by many as to the future of the event, some people have emerged from the woodwork who are keen to keep it alive. This is a great relief for many, not least myself, who for once will be able to run it without having to ‘run it’!
Chris Roberts, recently retired constable of the watch and back working for us again, is the man leading the team who intend to push on; and I can say that with him at the helm I have every confidence it will be very well organised.
The date for next year will be Saturday 4th July 2015.
