Our Humble Thanks

On behalf of Ian, Rose, and myself I would like to thank EVERYONE who came to this weekend’s shenanigans. It is always a humble moment to think that you would travel, some of you hundreds of miles, to come to our little offering.

We’d also like to extend a vote of immense gratitude and and love to our awesome volunteers – the true reflection of awesome – who work tirelessly behind the scenes;
Jo Mark Dan Gill Julie Linda Terrie Janice Michelle Kerry-Ann Claire Martin Andrew and our new friends Tim & Plumptious

ASDO would not work without you!

Finally, Gregory and Adrian who support us tirelessly and spin the magic tunes for us

We had a blast, we’ve met new friends, hugged and laughed with old friends and generally had a great time. We are a bit broken, but nothing a massage, a large gin and a healthy piece of cake won’t cure.

Thank you, you outdo yourselves each year. Your trust in us and your generosity to each other leaves us astounded.


Watch out for the Photo’s coming soon.

BBC Radio Lancashire



Now then you Lovely people. We’ve just learned that BBC Radio Lancashire will be joining us on Saturday morning for a live presentation of their programme “The Hunt”. Presenter Maria Felix Vas will be broadcasting live from ASDO to her colleague Glen Hunt in the studio. She will have to solve cryptic clues during her broadcast and accomplish tasks as part of that, she will be involving herself in many ways in the 2 hours of her presence there.

Some of you will be participating and being involved in this*evil laugh*, but as yet we don’t know how, where and when – so watch out (particularly if you’re a trader). All this will be broadcast live around the Lancashire area so if you can’t attend in person, tune in to BBC Radio Lancashire from 11am…

Are we excited? You bet we are….
