The Wyenot News Potters Bar Party 2005

What can I say? Thank you all very much for coming! As well as local friends, it was nice seeing those who flew in specially from afar - Di Hill from Alderney and John Gardner from Scotland, adding that 'Basil Fawlty' touch to the party and others who arrived by other means of transport from around the country. The loud music (traditional Potters Bar plus new editions) and dancing went on until last orders were called at the bar at 1:00 am. Paul Randell's songs, which were secretly snuck into the programme were an instant success and Po really enjoyed her birthday party.

The other track which was given its first local airing, 'I Love Ross-on-Wye' turned out to be a fantastic success and received repeated replay requests. It was indeed the last record of the night and I'm pretty sure that everyone went home singing it to themselves. That song was sent in to me some months ago by the 'Goth' artist himself, a regular Wyenot News reader from London. The moment I heard it I knew it would go down a treat. (A bit like when you're constipated and eat peanuts - oh no, that's 'come out a treat'.) Lots of you asked for a copy. I will ask the performers' permission to distribute it locally. (If you liked the Paul Randell music, the tracks were aired on last week's Wyenot News and can be downloaded or listened to here. To return here use the 'back' button on your browser)

Anyway, I didn't take as many photos this year as I was too busy playing music and drinking beer but there are a few below and I will publish the rest in a gallery when I have a little more time, later in the week. To see what people wrote in the Book of Remembrance this year, click here. (Opens in a separate window - just close when finished.)

Irene, a manager for Clinton Cards in Hereford is one of the original Potters Bar 'Winky Woo' drinkers, you can tell by the way she has brought the cocktail, originally invented by the 'Two Alans' into the computer age - doing away with the slice of lemon and maraschino cherry, adding a fibre optic lighting effect in its place.

Thanks again for coming and thank you to Christo and Ben for being such fantastic Potters Bar Barstewards for the night. It was great to see you all again and I'll see about arranging a summer version next time. We could invite a brass band to play on the lawn and then stand around them sucking lemons - just like the good old days.
