UPDATE ON MEGS FUND



Just to keep you informed of how your kind donations are being used for Meg and her family.

They finally moved house to a purpose modified home on the Cottingley estate last week. The modifications have been funded by the Health Authority and the council, but they gave only the basics, ie, medical modifications to suit Meg. Her mum, Sarah, is a single parent, and obviously now a full time carer, so part of the money has been spent on making the house liveable in, as it was a shell, with no floor covering, curtains or anything, with the decorations being in a particularly awful state. The money has provided these basics, but the main bulk has gone towards buying Meg a laptop which is modified to suit her needs regarding head switches to operate it, and educational software to help her too. It has also bought a computer desk, an LCD TV for her dvd's that stop her day becoming too boring, and a new dvd player. She watches a lot of dvd's...

Plans for the summer are to fund trips to the seaside, which will have to be done by large taxi's there and back, whch will cost a fortune. There are no other options due to the complexity of her equipment, and obviously she will need a carer too, though Sarah is better than anyone with Meg's medical care, the hospital staff included, I have no idea how she does it.

I will keep you informed, but suffice to say, thank you all again, we would have been knackered without it, and Meg, Carys and Sarah's life together is all the better for your generosity!

-SAT 11th MARCH-
.
our first gig at The New Roscoe of 2006
.
hope you can join us for a night off new songs , new gear , not much practice ond loadsa beer
.
phil is going into Do It All this week to have his legs trimmed and polished , so gud bud and eric number five wilkes
(he off the hobbit stature)
is standing in
(yes he is stood up)
.
we have below a full biog of the man himself if you don't know of this hero of the geetar world already
.
read on
.
full name -Karen David Wilkes
born - yes
sex - if he's lucky
.
born in the backroom of the lucky haddock fish bar , halton moor and named after his godfather Karen , david was a quiet boy who kept himslf to himself to himself
this all changed when , at the age of ten , he was picked from thousands to play the lead role in the movie version of the stage hit oliver
.
this led to various other roles in hit movies , he was willow , r2d2 , yoda , ET and even won an oscar for his portrayal of the little orphan girl Annie , and although he loved the life , he wanted something else
.
because whilst dave was the talk of tinseltown his old schoolmates Sam 'BAM BAM' Hirst and Paul 'STICKS' Richardson were making bit waves on the music scene with their number one rockin' and a poppin' combo Kajagoogoogoogoogoogoo
.
this was a big turning point for him and despite warnings from freinds and family he decided to pack in his growing movie career and become
.
PHIL COLLINS
.
after several years of motown covers and dodgy ballads with big drum bits in the middle Karen realised that it just was'nt for him
.
he went on to do various other things
but it was while working as a roadie for the fast food rockers that he finaly found his one true passion in life
.
he picked up his first geetar
.
and as they say the rest is history
.
five grammys , six brits , an ivor novello , large fries and a sweet chilli dip
.
he has played with them all , Claptout , Van Driver , Bendix , Moreblack , Robins Trowel , Brian Might , but keeps coming back to his old buds The Erics
,
LONG MAY HE ROCK

-SORRY SAM-
.
we would like to take this chance to say sorry to sam and the lads for getting the name of his new band wrong
.
SORRY
.
it was an email error
.
and now that we have all the details in , i am glad to tell you that the name of the new band is
.
i think its very brave of them to try something this different
.
they play punk versions of the top twenty ringtones whilst dressed as pink motorola flip-phones
.
sam misheard this and turned up to the first gig wearing nothing but a pair of pink flip-flops
.
glad we sorted that one out

-WE'RE BACK-
.
AS YOU CAN SEE
PAUL HAS BEEN AWAY ON HIS HOLS
.
well , it was more of a working holiday as he has been back at his old job as personal trainer for Arnold Swarzanegger
.
mr Swaartsaaneeegar , or bubbles , as paul knows him had put on a few pounds and decided it was time to call on his old training partner
.
mr squartersneckkler stated in an official press release that he puts his amazing rise to fame down to paul
.
paul refused to comment on this , just stating that he had known mr switzenoooglierer for many years and was touched by his remarks
.
as you know this meant that we had to cancel a few gigs ,but we are hoping to reschedule the madison square garden gigs and have been promised the first concert at the new wembley stadium when building work is completed in 2023
(with support from erics tribute act Bon Jovi)
.
.
.
also on the new stuff scene
sam has got another band together
.
we don't know that much about them as yet , but we do know that they are called
.
MOFO
.
judging by their name and this leaked photo of sam , we can only assume that they play stuff like anthrax /metallica /korn /chas n dave /maiden /black lace /brintney and daniel o'donnel
..
