The joy of a Private Press is that one can print exactly what one wants and I got great satisfaction today in printing a poster for a very old friend of mine Jonathan Thomson, who aged seventy five has just (today) completed the grulling Route 500 round the North of Scotland. He started at Inverness last Monday morning and got a good send-of from the Highland Council and some well-wishers, with myself and three other fiddlers playing him on his away with two pipe marches. His trip was to raise money for Post Traumatic Stress. That he was able to complete the route in under a week is a huge achievement. As he biked back to the Flora Macdonald statue in Inverness, his starting and finishing post, he merely said ‘Job done’. It was great to have been able to present him with a poster congratulating him on his outstanding achievement.
