Yes ...most people still dress up and why not? Do you not take a pride in your appearance? Men really do look smarter in a DJ and ladies always look at their best in something dressy. Long may it continue. Do the ladies ever say "Shall I bother to put make-up on" .....Ida Dow.

The weather was absolutely glorious, we were so lucky this time of year to have 10 days of boiling sunshine.
