Subject: Cellar Upstairs January - June 2008
I've heard from one person in this address list that she didn't receive the programme for the Cellar Upstairs for January - June 2008 when I sent it out at the end of December. In case that means that none of you in this part of the alphabet received it, I'm sending it again; I'm sorry if you have got it and this is a duplication.
All the best 
Sheila Miller (club organiser)
