It was a memorable night despite those IT Glitches early on so I’ll address those first as lets be honest is was both embarrassing & frustrating in equal measure. My apologies on behalf of all those involved with both the inadequate volume on the CAN video hotly followed by the ‘loss’ of Tut’s slides (not Tut’s fault I hasten to add) led to the lights going back on & a significant delay. The patience the audience gave as Marion, Denise, John, Doug & Tut frantically tried to work things out was really appreciated so thank you very much for this.

Thank you to everyone involved in any way with this years fund raising for the Melamchi School, with Doug Scott’s next presentation at the cafe only days away I am pleased to give the following update on both the fund raising & the School itself, so here goes:- The total raised to date in 2018 is £8,061.80 which is significantly higher than our earlier expectations of around 5/6K, simply a great result. This figure will go higher due to a Gift Aid application I need to make for my sponsors so the final figure should exceed £8,400.00. We will present

It’s hard to believe that this years event is now almost 6 weeks past us, my apologies for not putting this report together before my Alpine excursion, there is only one true excuse, please bear with me whilst I explain. The week after ROFN I’d planned to do two blogs the first would cover my 3rd trip to the Yorkshire 3 Peaks to walk it with friends & the remarkable co-incidence & treatment I received when my car broke down that same evening as well as going on to give an account of the Stockholm Marathon. The second would be

Over a week has passed since we welcomed Doug Scott OBE back to the cafe to give this year’s presentation ‘A Crawl Down the Ogre’ & what a night it was. My apologies for not writing earlier but there were a few loose ends to tie up in order to make my reflection on the night more complete. The night itself was a tremendous success, the feedback we’ve received has been unanimous praise for the enthralling tale delivered in Doug’s unassuming humorous style, the great work of Doug’s charity CAN & for the sitting room fireside atmosphere which our venue

As we move towards the excitement of hosting Doug Scott OBE again this Saturday for his presentation ‘A Crawl Down the Ogre’ a further reconciliation was needed to finalise the amount raised for Reach Out for Nepal this year.

Part 2 – Thanks to all at CAN (Community Action Nepal) On my way to The Lakes I called in at CAN’s offices to meet up with Ruth for the first time. Ruth & I have e-mailed frequently since our Reach Out for Nepal has linked up with Doug Scott’s charity but it was great to meet her in person. Relaxed conversation with Coffee & Biscuits led to a discussion about Doug’s signed prints which we have been selling through the Cafe. Prior to my visit we had sold 9 of the 11 prints which Doug gave us in February,
