Here we go then with the pictures, I have so many to catch up on.
Twist posting from twist and shout in Jan, BBB in March and now from
the Care & Share day and the start of year 14 with Wallie de Groote.

They were knocking down the Gym over the road, we did think it would be pretty
noisy in the venue but it was OK, more noise from the band in the upstairs hall.

Wallie did have a lot of pre-made designs to get around to the venue and possibly the
most balloon stock I have taken for everyone to use with so many 350's and 646's
for building the larger designs.

Wallie explained that this David Grist design, piglet was one of the first he learnt
and he always makes this design first at every gig.

Dave gave out some little thank yous for his wedding gift,
that was very nice and appreciated.

It's good to see some keeping with the old traditional way of keeping up to date.
