  2. Goin' To A Happening

    Looks like it'll be a wet run, up & down but well worth the trip for this one, superb dancefloor, great venue. Looking forward to some great tunes from the residents as always plus super guest slot from Paul McKay. Bring it on ! Just hope it's a little cooler then the weekender !!!!!!!

Super venue, outstanding dance floor, lovely people & cracking tunes, can't ask for more. Can't wait till easter next year, if it comes off ? Once again thanx to everyone involved, from "The Paignton Posse". Cheers then, Bob.
