Notation Assistant wanted

Dial 419 team meets Duncan Ballantyne

Just back from the first stint of project development for Dial 419 at Cardiff Airport. The best part of the weekend was listening to stories from Reverend Duncan Ballantyne, who runs the chaplaincy at the airport. We’re hoping that Duncan will agree to a cameo role in the performance.
