HOW WE DID IN 2016
Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas.
At long last, we’ve had some time to pull the end of the Hoolie together, just one grant return to do now.
We thought you would like to see how we did, where the money came from and where it went. We were so pleased to see that this year covered its costs and we still have a good reserve to go forward with.
We won’t be able to do a 2017 Hoolie, but want to look towards 2018. Some people have suggested that every two years would keep it fresh and avoid volunteer fatigue.
For our part, we need more “core” support. The set-up, weekend and knock down brings a lot of wonderful people together, but all the work that goes on for months either side needs more people who will help work out the format of the weekend, find the right acts, chase the funding, arrange travel & accommodation etc, so if any-one is up for helping with the boring stuff, please let us know.
Chas Whatmore has created this lovely video of the 2016 Hoolie, so enjoy and remember and have a fantastic 2017.
Loads of love and thanks to you all.
Ian and Liz
