Also playing last year were Cornish band The Velvet Hands. Below is a link to a really cool video of their single "Games". Take a look. It's clever.
Continuing with the reminder of last year's bands, here are the double bass wielding washboard-tastic Terry and Gerry doing Reservation. What a brilliant set they did and such nice people too. Magic.
In these cold wet winter days, filled with worrying worldwide news, as a reminder of better times, here's a link to the mighty Kingstons who played at last year's GITG doing One Step Beyond. Go on. Smile. Just for a bit.
Nice to see some publicity in the press for the money we raised last year. Donations now all made and defibrillator up and running at St Kew Inn. Many thanks to Sarah,Mike and Harry at St Kew Inn for everything. Our cover photo shows a lovely sunny day at GITG in the beautiful gardens at St Kew Inn last September.
The Gig in the Garden, an event held jointly by St. Kew Inn and North Cornwall’s radio station NCB Radio has confirmed the donations made after last year’s successful event. GITG was proud to have been instrumental in raising the final sum of £1000 needed to install a FLEET defibrillator at St. Kew which is now in place and operational. In addition, the event was able to support St. Kew Playing field Trust with a donation of £1000, St. Kew and Port Isaac School...s with donations of £500 each and St. Kew Pre-School and Port Isaac Playgroup £250 each. In addition, funds raised were sufficient to pay the first year’s running cost for the defibrillator and to help NCB Radio with a donation of £200.
Sarah Allen of St. Kew Inn said “We are really grateful to all those who came along to the event and enabled us to support some great local organisations. Many thanks also to all who helped to organise the event both before and on the day”.
Full details of donations and other information about the Gig in the Garden can be found on the Gig in the Garden Facebook page. If you have any queries, please contact Jenny Brown at NCB Radio on firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you so much to everyone who came to last year's event and helped raise the money that enabled us to do this.
Thank you so much to everyone who came to GITG 2016. We hope that you had a great time. We could not do it without you coming along. Thank you also to all of the bands and their crews, the PA and sound guys. Most of all, thank you to Sarah and Mike and all the staff at the amazing St Kew Inn - the best pub there is. Thank you one and all.
