Les, thanks for the personal note, but I thought I'd reply here to spread my appreciation for what you've done a bit wider.
Like you have for a lot of others I guess, you gave Christine and I one of our very first full gigs. I'm sad that we won't be coming up to see you again in November, but as you and everyone else have said, some things are more important. Our nearest and dearest sometimes find that hard to believe, but I think something like this gives us all a reality check!
You and the club will be sorely missed. You're both unique, and the better for it!
I'm sure we'll keep in touch, here at least.
All the best for the future.
Our very warmest wishes go with you.
Steve (and Christine)
