Our local paper, East Anglian Daily Times, did the following 3 page spread on Bryan.
Hope it comes out OK in the scan.

A facinating man indeed, and a potted history of the red-nosed chap as a postscript to boot! Thanks indeed, Miraiker..... Shame it's not a paper sindicated to the Nationals! :D

Thanks Miraiker.

I hope Bryan will continue to play a mentoring role and train the next generation in the noble art of Punch and Judy puppet making for years to come.

The photo below does not capture the joviality of the bloke. But he must have his serious seconds.

I am now wondering who will set up their booth in this spot in the church yard. Has anyone bagsed it?

Yes Glyn and Katie Edwards rushed in at the last May Fayre to make sure they got it first.

I think Geoff Felix should have the honour.

I can imagine Geoff in that spot, Chris.
Let's hear your reasons.

Success comes to he or her with the pointiest elbows. Does the 3.30 time slot go with the spot?
Everyone could move in a clockwise or anti clockwise rotation. Has anyone thought of camping out in the yard overnight? Simply a matter of laying the booth horizontally.

David is taking on the role of the crocodile in Peter Pan.

Just ignore them Miraiker. They love to butt in.

I was quite serious in suggesting Geoff.

Firstly he'd enjoy it.
But he is surely the most loyal May Fayre supporter. Has he ever missed one? And he always performs. He always delivers a reliable slick and entertaining show. And while most of us tend to gather in our cliques I have noticed that if there is a visitor or a newcomer Geoff is the one to greet them and introduce them around.

Also Geoff supports the May Fayre by his generosity with his flat and offers of accomodation. How many of us would give up our floor space, bed and bathroom to a bevy of camping punchmen year after year? This has enabled not a few profs to perform who would have been unable to do so otherwise.
