Hi Ken,

Saw Ivor the other day and he told me about the Akeley Morris part of your Deanshanger website.
Certainly brings back some memories. All that long hair (for most of us that is) and now long gone.
The highlight for me I think was the Cropredy gig, especially that swim in the pool after getting up a massive sweat on a baking hot day.

Good times.
Just me being picky but if you could update the site to show my real name instead of my stage name you'd be making an O.A.P. very happy.
All the best mate,
Tim Shippobotham.

We Danced this one.

By the mid-1970s, Fairport Convention members Dave Pegg and Dave Swarbrick had moved to Cropredy. In 1976, the band played an impromptu concert to support the village fete's fundraising. The gig was in the extensive garden at Prescote Manor, owned by Dick Crossman (a Labour cabinet minister) and his wife Anne.

We drank all the beer and all had a swim in his pool (Tates was the only one with a towel not so much a dry down as a sponge down)

And this one
