Welcome Hayley! It's so great to see you here! We're honoured to have you at our forum. Thank you so much for sharing your incredible voice with all of us. Your music and sweet personality has made a difference in the lives of so many people. We look forward to hearing and enjoying it for yours to come!
*** Away on "holiday" (a.k.a. swamped with homework!). Will be back soon! ***
I don't know what bowls me over most. Well, of course I do! It's you, from that very first meeting when, turning to the people behind me at Derngate, I said to them, 'Go on, push past me me if you want her to sign something, I'm just content being close to her'.
It seemed you took two steps when I'm sure you needed six, in fact so far seemingly away you were I am surprised you heard me at all. You thrust your hand into mine and said, 'Well, you can't get any closer than saying 'hi!' can you?'
Then, at Newmarket on Thursday, because I'd had such chances with you at Cardiff and Llandudno I thought I should take a back row line-up to the others.
Catching up on the latest news I find in fact you, Hayley, have joined us.
What, then can I say in welcome? Obviously, we feel honoured and privileged. For you, to whom we attribute the highest professional standards, to say, as you did on the pavement at Cadogan Hall and on the street at Cardiff, 'Hi guys, I'm with you', on this board is a statement that you reckon our standard of debate and posting is good enough for you. That is an accolade in response to which one can only use one of your own exclamations, 'oh wow!'. Thank you.
So, 'welcome', to a thoroughly modern, 21st century young woman, whose skills, I'm sure, can bring those old-fashioned values, so deeply imbued in your personality, to the fore and promote them as the latest 'must have' trend-setting fashion essentials.
I really enjoyed your DVD. It came very highly recommended, but your singing went well beyond the already high expectations I went in with. I'm looking forward to seeing a live performance one of these days.

Delighted to hear yo have joined the Forum Hayley. When I read in Roger's review of Newmarket that you had joined I thought WOW!! better check this out and get myself joined!! You are such an inspiration.
I was very happy to meet up with you on Saturday at Regent's Park and having my photograph taken with you was a very special moment for me.
Looking forward to your Gawsworth Hall concert on 6th August and hopefully many many more.
I recognise you from Hayley's official forum, so thank you for joining us too. I look forward to reading all your future posts on both forums.
I'm sure you'll have lots of fun finding your way around here, and don't miss our great coverage of Hayley's recent concerts at Cadogan Hall, Wisley Gardens, Newmarket Racecourse, Regent's Park and Edinburgh Castle. You'll find them all on the 'Hayley in Concert' board. i21.photobucket.com/albums/b294/hdjoespics/EEjdKsU.gif
