Current PiF Situation 15/9/2021

I'm not sure yet whether to keep PiF going. At the moment I'm only adding events to the PiF Facebook page.

https://www.facebook.com/playinginfaversham/


Facebook is not an ideal platform for showing future dates of gigs etc. So if I decide to keep PiF going then I will start using this site again.

Apologies for all this - after 10 years of doing PiF - it is hard to give up.

Thanks

Rob


UPDATE: 20/9/2021


I'm giving it a go!


But I am struggling to remember how I do it!
