My daughter Lucy plays french horn in the South Ulster Youth Orchestra and on Sunday they were playing in Warrenpoint at the Blues on the Bay festival. With a good forecast for the day we took a picnic, which was a good thing as the food that was available was very expensive. We met Leigh’s parents Georgie and Jim there and Jim brought his new scooter which he and Daniel has great fun on, chasing each other round the park like a couple of hooligans!!
Lucy played really well and the large crowd who watched from the grassy bank on picnic rugs seemed to enjoy it too, as the applause was enthusiastic. Hopefully the collection they made to raise money for their concert tour to Poland in a few weeks made a few pounds.
