Well Done!

Thank you and Well Done to everyone who participated in yesterdays 'We Love The West Cliff' Concert to help celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Friends of the West Cliff.

Thank you all again.

'We Love The West Cliff' Concert - Make Up Notes.

Message from Chris Bareham:

'I will bring the CMTS Make Up boxes as usual but no base is needed.
Men & Boys; Just some brick red on cheeks and lips.
Ladies & Girls; Usual evening foundation; strong eyes and plenty of cheek and lip colour to counteract the effect of the lights.'
