    i was wondering how mant of you all were planning on attending the english whippet derby at newton aycliffe as the man from the council is a very good friend of mine, i spoke to him the other night and he was saying that the council have gave us anther £500 to go with the £2000 all ready add so weve decided to add the £500 for the mondays open, i also know that there booked a top artist for the sat night with disco and are booking another artist and kareoke for the sun night this will be the best english whippet derby yet. the food is great we eat out there quite alot and really cheap. anyone wanting to know anything about newton aycliffe please ask as i live here, there plenty to do

    Hi denise i think it is a waste of good money best keep it in your pocket and invite a few people you like over and put it to good use in the best pub in town, only joking . Well done i realy hope those attending appreaciate the skills of a good beggar and enjoy a cracking weekend i am sure you and the others staging this event will do the best they can to make it a success and i hope i win it .
