Thank you, China

Apparently this Blog gets more 'hits' from Chinese readers than from any other country. Bless you all - though I don't claim to be writing for a world-wide audience here. Can't imagine who I thought I was writing for frankly. Anyway in the spirit of international cooperation send me your questions - wherever you are - and I'll answer (without recourse to Wikipedia). Answers guaranteed to be honest - but not necessarily accurate.

More important than that (though what can matter more than world harmony) have you noticed how the Buxton Festival Fringe 2013 is starting to grow? This happens in February. Green shoots of spring recovery, probably. If I can unlock a password or two another six shows will pop-up shortly. Anyway what have we got that is new for your delectation?

Our old friends from the Tideswell Male Voice Choir are back. Now some people say "They're just a bunch of blokes in matching jackets". But that's before they've hear the Choir - which is fab. Hear them for yourselves at St John's Church on Wednesday July 10th when they'll be joined by the youthful choir and brass band of Harpur Hill School.

Also on the music front we welcome the North Cheshire Wind Orchestra which plays at Buxton's Methodist Church on Sunday July 7th from 2.00-3.30pm. They promise a programme of tuneful music from England and the United States. I for one don't doubt them.
