Fabulous, colourful montage, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ray. I was amazed by the number of boats and could have bored everybody to death with boat pictures!
what a nice event collage
Bill Phillips: Thank you Chantal. It has taken 40 years to get the canal reopened and included having to re join two sections by tunnelling under the motorway! It was a great day!

Yes, what a feast- a colourful British feast full of delights! And I see Stanley laughing, he may hope that one day Droitwich Spa will be reopened and the healing power of salt will be appreciated again! Did you sing your song at this festive occasion?
Bill Phillips: I didn't but my friend Mick did some of my songs and I have a short film clip of him singing one of them. When I have time I will post it on You tube

An excellent montage: you deserve high praise for work of this quality.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Chris. We have just got back from our book sale and over the two days we made £504 so we are knackered but very pleased!

Wonderful collage, very colourful, but then, the event must have been very important!
Great set of pictures.
Bill Phillips: It was Lady P. It has taken 40 years of efforts by volunteers to raise the money and get the work done and they deserve all the praise they get. We had a book sale for two days to coincide with the opening and also the music festival and we have made £504 so we are very pleased
Your collage is very nice - bright and colourful and full of joy.
Bill Phillips: It was a great occasion Mary and wonderful to see all the boats

Looks like a splendid occasion and the collage shows a good selection. Canal art is so colourful.
Bill Phillips: It was a great day and carries on through into Sunday.
What a wonderful occasion- looks like the weather was perfect to celebrate it! Fun collage Bill!
A fine set of shots Bill, and a goodly sum of money raised as well.
Bill Phillips: A lot of money was raised by other organisations too so it was a very successful weekend all round
