John Sayer is seen here receiving an award recognising the ten years service he has given to Stone Festival – most of those years as Chairman. John stood down as Chairman last year, handing the mantle to Andy Glover who has been elected to serve as Chairman for the 2015 Festival.

John has given sterling service, coping with the best and worst of times (the worst being invariably the vagaries of the English weather). John, a staunch Rotarian of many years standing, has been asked to take pver the regional vice- chair and the demands that places on him has meant that the time he devoted to Festival has now been spoken for.

He will however still be involved in the Festival week when all hand are called to the pump. In recognition of his commitment to Festival, John was presented with Prints of the iconic fronts to the Festival Programme kindly executed by Emma Joustra – which neatly cover John’s stint at the helm.
