Due to many fantastic NWOBHM bands from the North getting in touch and asking to play for us, we thought we would bring Mearfest to them.
On Sunday 3rd March 2017 we will be at Trillions Rock bar in Newcastle hosting an all day event. Tickets available from their box office. Click on link to take you there.
We have an amazing line up, ten bands for an entrance fee of £10.00
Doors open from 12.15pm to 23.00pm
The Filth Hounds
We also wanted to do something for the local community in the north east. Molly would of had Downs syndrome, this subject has been very close to our hearts mainly me bursting into tears every time I see a little girl with Downs!! So we are splitting the proceeds to Down Syndrome North East A fantastic charity who do many essential activities and give support to parents, adults and children with Downs.
We will have our normal Rockerrollertombolla and raffle and we will be selling our MEARFEST T-SHIRTS.
Thank you for continuing to support us.
That day I lost Molly, I felt submerged, deep in water, flailing around desperate for air
I had to learn to adapt with new gills which grew from grief and guilt
Pregnant aged 45, a miracle my doctors told me
I was given the promise of a gift
Happy ever after they said, something I still wish for as
During that day it was all taken away
I am changing, I am waking up
Through seeking self knowledge I evolve
I see fresh insights never perceived before
I am learning, things I never thought I would need to learn
Before that day I was one whole happy person, now I am someone else,
From the darkness I glided up to the surface, flecks of light beckoned me, the water clears, I am a ‘Still’ childless mother
I have spent time seated deep in solitude, surrounded by the deafening silence of busy adults
I have taught myself to carry on, not to give up, to love, not hate, to accept, not blame, to be calm and not be angry
I am learning to acknowledge coincidences, finding appreciation in all good that shows itself after that day
She was never meant to live a moment on this earth, yet she is everywhere in our world
She died, but she has given life to many others, how can I be sad?
I choose not to swim within the murky sludge of loss, blame and anger, it won’t bring her back
I observe my feelings and their responses, the Buddha within keeps my peace safe
With the skill of an antiques restorer, I piece together all remaining fragments of love and faith Shattered within
My broken heart mending slowly, while my drenched soul dries itself out
I look back at my own footsteps and the journey it has brought me on
The sea rolls in and before my eyes takes that path away, I walk forward I look back it vanishes I leave another imprint, I know it was there
I breathe in, I breathe out, effortless life forces working over time
I step ahead into the sunshine and there where ever I look I am.
