  1. Do you have a transcript of the interview with David Dykes from Clare Cottage on 7th October that went out on Peterborough at 6:50 and on Andy Harper’s show at 8:20. I am one of the duty managers at the Cottage,and we like to keep any media coverage to show to our Funders that we do try to keep a high profile.
