Hello, Goodbye

With Dave Peters at St Peter's Church Hall
For the past two and a half years, it has been my absolute pleasure and privilege to look after the website, facebook and twitter pages for the British Beatles Fan Club.  Ihave seen the numbers for each grow from a few hundred into the thousands, and I have enjoyed every moment!  However, my work commitments have grown to the point where I feel I can no longer give this site the time and attention that it, and all of you, deserve.

I have therefore decided that the best thing to do is to step down and pass the website on to someone else.  I am delighted to announce that Michele Copp will be taking over as Webmaster, with full responsibility for the BBFC's online presence.  Michele is a great Beatles fan, and I know I am leaving this site in very safe and very good hands.  Indeed, my decision to leave was made much easier once Michele agreed to take over.  Hopefully the transition will be seamless, but please bear with us if there are a few glitches.

I'm  not turning my back on the Beatles completely.  I could never do that!  In my role as Senior Lecturer at the University of Chester, I'm involved in teaching a new heritage course that includes a six-week section on the Beatles (click HERE for more details), with one of the classes taught in the most famous club in the world - The Cavern!  I will also be expanding my role as a volunteer at St Peter's Church, helping to welcome visitors from all over the world to the place where John and Paul first met.  If you're in Liverpool, and the Hall is open for visitors, please come and say hello!

And, of course, I'll be checking the BBFC website regularly for all the great news that I'm certain will continue to be posted here.

Thank you all for your support for this site, for the many fans who have 'liked' us on facebook, and for all our twitter followers.

Peace, love and all good wishes
