INFORMATION SHEET w/c MONDAY, 21st OCTOBER, 2019
........to Paul, Barry, Malcolm and Dave who represented LMM on Thursday evening, 10th October, at the Blackburn Artists’ session. Paul & Barry demonstrated things to be done with sticks, hankies and swords and Dave & Malcolm played and sang to them as they worked.
