What a wonderful tribute to a well-loved man! Brian Lavery, he of The Headscarf Revolutionaries, directed the tribute in the Minster and the contributions from the family were very poignant. Fellow GMB Unionist Les Dobbs gave a great speech on Mick's national contribution to the TU cause. Great sets from Rory McCleod, Reg Meuross and many local singers including Mick's 2 bands, The Hillbilly Troupe and Spare Hands. All organised by Mick's loving wife, Mary. What a star!
