We had heard through the metal drums, that a Mearfest t-shirt had been spotted at a Nitroville gig.
But of course Molly was at this gig!
Gemma Salliss and Tola Lamont from Nitroville met up and happy hugs were exchanged.
This is what Mearfest is all about.
THANK YOU LADIES
Wear Molly, meet your heroes.
Ian has been a loyal and trusted Mearfest friend and photographer
for our North East event last year.

But we know he was already a true legend.
WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING
Today on the 21st March we celebrate world Down Syndrome Day, why to day ?
It is because of the 1 extra chromosome = 21.
Molly Mear had Down's, we were given the news at 23 weeks gestation and we did battle all the what if's, how are we going to cope?
Since her passing we have seen that Down's babies, children and adults are exceptional people, full of love and laughter. If she had lived we wouldn't have changed a thing.
Today is for Molly and all her unique friends.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for today
We love you X
(In Loving Memory)
A beauty never seen
Just ‘What could have been.’
So many tears
No ‘Mummy’ or ‘Daddy’
To soothe the ears
A room left bare
Just shadows there
Lives upturned and shaken
So much taken
No one understands
Bring on the bands
Let eyes awaken
Hope not forsaken
Take time to stare
At the banner there
Share the tears
Open your ears
Imagine where they have been
And with them stand
In front of her hand
By Steve Ellis
Into The Blue
Dedicated to Brian and Claire Mear
On the eve of Mearfest South August 12th 2016.
Of late I am feeling that Mearfest is becoming something very interesting, it is starting to develop its own pathway to a more creative, expressive, original, sharing, caring & giving destination.
This piece of brilliance is by the artist Angela Holland-Yousaf. Brian saw her work online and asked if she would come up with something just for us.
This is incredible, as she has captured the essence of who we are. By using her own daughters as inspiration and her interpretations of the powerful words of the mighty STEVE ELLIS from Into the Blue, this poem he wrote for us in 2016. We are both so excited about this piece. Its just so beautifully done.
THANK YOU ANGELA
If you feel inspired to do something for us, please just ask, you never know where it may lead.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ME
Here’s my hand print, it’s very small
Unlike my sister Molly’s it's hardly known at all
My fingers on the outside are short, but the middle one is tall
My handprints are on shirts, where people rock and roll
I hang on banners high and touch both heart and soul
You will find mine on windows and sticking to the wall
They will make a great big mess, from someone so very small
Mine are on record covers and even on a song
You told the world about me and all that went so wrong
So here is one from me mummy, that you can’t wipe away
A Present from both your daughters, on this your Mother’s Day
I will always love you mummy,
I’ll be here in your heart and just like baby Amelie we will never be apart.
(Mothers Day 11th March 2018)
The happiest yet. Worth the pain & the wait.
