|Mailing List /
|We plan to have some
launch events in both Surrey and London. In most
of these we hope that you will have the
opportunity to not only see a comprehensive live
set from Olly (including the 'Remember Poppy Day
single) but also Sam's superb set.
Either live act is a treat, but the opportunity
to see both is not to be missed. Georgi
will be playing on saxophone in as many gigs as
work commitments allow and we have other great
sax players at hand if necessary.

gigs and other news, please join our mailing

Debate & Forum
|The messages in the poem
and song are sincere and we would like to gently
encourage people to take a little time to think
about those who have made sacrifices.
|Is there a need for some
debate on the issue? Does it need some decision
makers to either encourage the break or make it
easier for those who wish to participate? If
you're in a meeting' for example, its difficult
for an individual unless someone takes an
initiative and organises a planned 2 minute
In the past, radio stations on all
channels would stop to announce and observe the
2 minutes silence, which was both respectful and
also a useful reminder.
|If you would like to be
involved in this debate, we have a discussion
our new Facebook pages for you to exchange ideas
make suggestions that would be helpful.
If you would like to suggest new discussion
topics, or you are not on Facebook, please send
