Ian McMillan's words to 'The Yorkshire Anthem' on first impression certainly did seem a bit querky and not quite what I expected.

But Ian is well known for his querky use of humour and sense of fun and when the song was sung by the crowd in the square in the sun it all seemed to flow with the music very well and make sense.

It certainly put a big smile on everyone's faces and got the biggest applause and appreciation and that's what counts.

Big thumbs up to James Beattie, Sally Egan, Marsden Concert brass band, Ian and all the volunteers.
