A huge thank you to all the T shirt wearers who left their beds early to be part of the the final photoshoot on Saturday morning.
A big thank you also to Chris, Gerry, Ric, Simon and Peggy, and Gareth, the festival organiser, for turning up in their favourite Cropredy T shirts to be part of the big picture.
Most especially the biggest thanks must go to Simon Hadley and his partner Liz, for the time they devoted to this project both before and during the festival.
