At the point where Sweet Coppin and ourselves started to assemble it had been raining steadily for about an hour. A short walk from the seafront to the market square proved no drier. Following a shorter discussion under umbrellas and adjacent scaffolding, a decision was reached that unless we had a team who could dance either Bobbing Around or Over the Water to Charlie we should cancel. We didn't so we did!
