Editor's Comment - It is a part of The Painter's Chronicle ethos to support local organisations and groups and by forming our new partnership with Fishing For Bishops we firmly feel that we are boosting their appearance with our target audience whilst they are boosting ours with theirs. We hope that the hard work and enthusiasm put in by all involved in the band works out and that their music leads a pathway to a bright future! Here's to a great partnership!

Just sending out a congratulations to Paul Marsh, Ben Scarf, Matthew Wedge Roberts and Billy Painter, for completing their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Practice Expedition.

The event took place on the 16th - 19th April, in the Lake District, where they spent 4 days hiking in the Lake Districtian mountains. Among the peaks that they ascended were the Old Man of Coniston, Fairfeild, High Street and many many more. And all this was done in hot sunny weather, which is of course, very typical of England.

This is a preliminary to a similar event in the Summer at Loch Lomond, where the weather will surely be grand. It says so in the song.

Pace Egg T-Shirts

This years official Pace Egg T-shirts were once again designed and produced by 'H' Gregg, and even better 'H' undertook this master project and did it all for absolutely nothing! The Eggers were absolutely delighted at this, as they all felt that this really did show true Calder Valley spirit and good will! The Pace Eggers would like to thank 'H' for his help and generousity, it was a lovely gesture!
*The Painter's Chronicle presented 'H' with a framed photograph of the team after the Hebden Bridge performance. 'H' tells us that this now has, "pride of place in his workshop".
