More than deserved. You do important work. We live in Brighton, but my son’s telling his string-playing friends at college about your workshop tomorrow – it’s easy for them to get to, especially as it starts at 1. I hope it leads to new musical associations!
Fantastic! Pass on our big thanks, Elaine! Will be great if they can make it.
