David Thompson notified us he is still missing his tenor Wheatstone English concertina which he left in a taxi from Clapham Junction on the 28th June. TFL notified him that they are giving up on the search.
He has posted on c.net, notified shops and has been monitoring e-bay without any result so far. It is black, metal ended – tenor (starts C below Middle C) and has serial number 36628.
Eilish Kennedy is looking after the organisation this year – she can be reached on firstname.lastname@example.org.

There is a review of last years school on Concertina.net for those interested, at http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=15071
