Mike Peters - Father to Son @ The Gathering 28/01/11



This weekend the band The Alarm were playing at the gathering held at Pontins holiday camp here in Prestatyn-Andrew was determined he was going and the whole family got behind him to support him-We all headed down there in a convoy of cars Andrew ,Jayne , son Jonathan and his girlfriend in one car- John , Ann ,Tim and son Peter and myself in another -we were ushered in through the stage door and taken to the back of the gig where all the sound crew were working-this area was cordoned off to the public -Andrew and Jayne were escorted through, It was lovely to see how many of the sound guys and technicians made a beeline for Andrew and there was a lot of hugs and back slapping going on ! He was in his element ! though I`am sure it was hard at times to stop himself from adjusting a few knobs and switches as he is usually working and not relaxing at these events ! We did think we would be only stopping for an hour but it turned out to be all evening -we all really enjoyed ourselves !
Ann and I are a little bleary eyed this morning ! we are off to Asda`s for a foyer collection for MNDA- wish us luck !

I'm so glad for Andrew, that he got to get out and listen to the band! I'm sure it made his day, and he was probably really tired this morning - as were the rest of you! I hope you made a bundle on the foyer collection!
