- 21.07.08 - BOILERS, WEDDINGS & DECORATING

APOLOGIES to anyone who has visited this site in the previous few months.  You will have noticed that nothing much has changed.  I had rather a lot going on, not least organising my wedding, and as a result the websites had to take something of a back seat.  However I hope that slowly I can get back to normal and that includes finding time to keep on top of the websites.

Regarding the CONVENTION planned for this year, this too will now (we hope) be next year. All of us here at Taggart Fanclub have had circumstances beyond our control to deal with this year and as such we couldn't give planning the event the attention it deserves.

It's not about murder, but yes, there are deaths in it. I won't give too much away at the moment until we have final dates and venue sorted out. But hopefully yourself and a few Taggart fans might like to stroll along??
