There were so many special moments from the big 50th party last night at #Cropredy2017

I'm sure many of them will be shared on social media in coming days, weeks and months.

You may have noticed that my posts over the last few days have been limited to just live photo action shots (from the barrier) rather than actual video. I made the decision not to shoot video until Saturday night and then limit that to just one or two clips.

Jean Camp will be writing her full review of the weekend and sharing her photos in a later article.

Paul Johnson and I recoded two interviews over the weekend. . One was with Chris Leslie and the other with Joy from Quill. Again, both of these interviews will featured on the site in due course.

So I'll say goodnight and leave you with this. I'll post my other clip tomorrow.
