      Hi Folks!
      Re the Artists & Illustrators rota:
      There are just one or two free passes still available as of today (1st July)
      so if you're at all interested, NOW is the time to let me know : )
      If we are unable to get you in free I do hope that anyone that comes along
      to the fair will drop by our stall (as I'm sure you all will!) & then we can
      connect some of these words to the faces they belong to...
      It really is fun - honest! So I look forward to meeting some of you there!
      Best wishes to everyone
      Candida
