Maybe not too many folks outside of Hampshire know Robin? He is one of our unsung hero’s who has been running the Pilot Session near Poole now for the last six years. As well as his session support, Robin has acted as a conduit for any news about Bluegrass in his area - keeping our community informed and up to date. Sadly Robin is having to stand down from his session as he is waiting for Heart Surgery. We would like to thank him for all his efforts and wish him the very best and a rapid recovery. Anyone out there who would like to help to keep his session going? If you know Robin, then please make contact - if not, then please talk to me.
