Please will you encourage your musical friends to let us have their contact details so
that we can do our publicity job more effectively? We keep coming across people who
think that all we do is organize coach trips. “I’m not interested in ConGo because I
don’t like travelling by coach”!! Please tell them how silly this is!!
Your committee all live in or near Gosforth. We really need representatives in
Egremont, Whitehaven and Cockermouth. Could one of these be YOU?
