Morning to all, I am up but not sure if awake after yesterday. Do you have any brass bands down there Poppy? I might retire in that area, so would need to join a band so we could do a parade just for you.
Digi camera's are great, but only if you have chance to use them, I would have loved to have got some more pictures but it is a bit difficult to do when marching along and playing.

Thanks for adding the extra photos, June - they are really good! And how wonderful all of you could meet like that - and if we convince our Tanooma is eat carrots and spinach, she'll surely be strong enough to attend the next one, especially knowing that everyone will be happy to have a fold up chair for her to sit on.

How long was the march, I wonder - and did our Nev get blisters on his heels or toes from all the walking - ouch!!

The entire walk lasted about three quarters of an hour, but there were three stops to play hymn tunes as well so we weren't walking all the time. It is the rout it takes though, winding up and down different streets. If every one had just vanished halfway through, I would have been totally lost in that maze.
While playing you can't really watch where you are or where your going as it is a matter of concentrating on your music, and not tripping up. So when we finish one tune and look up again, we are on a different street again.

June and Condor, what lovely photographs, and Nev, I am so glad that they came to see you, along with himself, the strange man with the dog. I must say, it is good to see that he is not a stalker after all. It must have been fantastic to meet after all these years of chatting on the net.

Always knew there was a reason playing drums was far easier than a horn when in a parade, Nev - no only can't you see where you're going (glad you didn't get lost - eep!), you've got to breath and walk and blow - all at the same time! Yup, it takes skill and good for you!!

That's a long way to go so glad there were three stops to play hymns (I thought it must be for a religious occassion after seeing the lead gentleman - sorry, but I'm not sure what his title is - here we have Ministers but for some reason, I think titles are different in Britain).

You are right Mara, it was the minister

These parades were a big thing in the past when all the churches used to march from their respective churches, all the congregation dressed in their finery and carrying many ornate banners, into the town centres where a joint service was held to the accompaniment of several brass bands. Afterwards everyone went to a field and celebrated with stalls and games etc.

Sadly, with the decline of the churches and religion in general, these walks of witness are now only performed here and there. The village of Ainsworth is nothing more than a cluster of houses, either side of a main road, but it still has three major churches there, all close together.

I actually was a little embarrassed about that, as even if I had heard his name before I couldn't remember it on the day, and it would have been so much nicer to have been able to say "Hello Dave, nice to meet you too".
Not to worry, I will know and remember next time.

I think it is a reference to us three getting together, with Dave at a distance with the dog, as in your photo's he he.
