It would be wonderful if we could make the same sort of celebration and festival of life that we did for Col K. It was a wonderful send off for a wonderful guy and I think Theresa deserves the same.

In normal circumstances I too would definitely be planning to attend, but the weather conditions have been, and are forecast to be, atrocious and even a relatively short (in mileage terms) trans-Pennine journey is extremely hazardous. I've been grounded for the past three weeks, and I can't see the situation improving before Thursday, sadly.

Theresa deserves the very best of send-offs, and the comparison with ColK is well made, so Hils I think your idea is much more sensible for when the big freeze is over - count me in for that!

I'm not likely to make it from London to Manchester on Thursday, but
here's the shanty I sang for Theresa on the bad shirts and shanty day in the Endeavour at Whitby in 2001, after she won the Saltburn shanty competition:

I'm feeling sad and so forlorn
Sing 'em loud
Can't help the gender I was born
Sing 'em loud

We weedy women high and shrill
Sing 'em loud
Can't compete with Jim or Bill
Sing 'em loud

While they are belting out each word
Sing 'em loud
We women struggle to be heard
Sing 'em loud

But there is one who breaks the rule she
Sings 'em loud
Her name it is Theresa Tooley, she
Sings 'em loud

I spoke to Hilary yesterday (another founder member of Saddleworth Folk Festival) and we both agreed that it would be good to have an event at this year's festival in memory of Theresa - possibly the Sunday Sing which she led for several years with such joy and passion.

Given that we're being snowed on again, I'm not going to be able to make it up as I was hoping to.

I couldn't help but think of her in church on Sunday,as we sang 'When the Roll is called up yonder' (I've sung it many times and at least once with Theresa, but always clutching a pint mug, in a pub - never sober and in church before!)... God Speed, Theresa, there'll be a candle burning and a tot waiting for you tomorrow night.

I was saddened to hear of Teresa's passing. Although I have known Teresa for a number of years and heard her sing many times my abiding memory is of her singing "Union Miner " at Cleckheaton a few years ago.
Unfortunately I wont be able to attend the funeral but I'll look out for the memorial concert.
Teresas humour and zest for singing was infectious and uplifting.
I'll raise a glass to you tomorrow Teresa.

I live just down the road but, unfortunately, work in Leeds, so will not be able to get there. I was hoping to book the day off but a 3 hour jurney in this morning and not arriving till 10:30 scuppered that idea:-(

Theresa was a regular at Swinton before her illness and always cheered us up with that mighty voice. She will be missed. If anyone wants a venue for a celebration of her life in the near future I can always ask at the White Lion where our club is. Just PM me.

Hi folks

Info for anyone else interested in a ride from Leeds Train Station:

Will be picking up between 10.30-11.00. As its such a big place, lets agree to meet away from the meetng place. Head L after exiting the ticket check point, go down the slope past the ticket purchasing windows (staying within the train station). On the L-hand side is McDonalds and Subways, and on the R-hand side is window display of bridal wear. There is some seating between, and I shall meet folks there who have not been in touch. We shall be leaving promotely at 11am

By going so early, this will allow 90mins for the journey, plus a chance to get a warm drink / tidy up before heading to the funeral.

Also it hopefully allow enough time in case there are any accidents.

My number is 0772 723 1990

Marie

A warm (if snowy) and wonderful send off to an old and dear friend

Tears of sadness were replaced with laughter as Theresa's coffin was carried out of the crematorium to Gracie Fields Lankie tones singing 'Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye'

Songs and personal stories in the club afterwards.

'So here's to you, and our time together.
I will share with you a parting glass,
And bid adieu with some smile and laughter,
Our time apart will be short, and pass.'

Thanks to all who helped to make this a tribute to a life that touched so many others

Like so many others, I just wasn't able to make it, but took time out to remember.

So many memories of that irrepressible little bundle of energy: too many to list them all, but especially with the Shellbacks in the States, and that mega-sing in the bar at Banbury (2002?) with the Shells, the Laners, etc. And here in Alcester, Theresa leading "Circle of the Sun" when one of the firemen's children was christened at the Festival church service.

Bury my body in a circle of the sun,

A great turnout for a great lady. We hardly felt the cold yesterday in the warmth of affection for that "grand old lady of music" From Opera to Folk by way of all the steps in between she was surely one of the great entertainers. It was hard to get through the service without tearing-up at so many many memories of her.
Well at least the "Choir Invisible" will have at least one good singer now! and speaking from personal experience she will improve the performance of all those that sing with her there.
"Go for it T!"

I think it was the weather rather than the distance that prevented some folk from getting to the funeral. If a memorial day/weekend is to be arranged I think it is important that it be as central as possible rather than at one end of the country or another. Somewhere in the Midlands would probably be the best solution. If anyone knows a field with a pub in that area that would allow lots of folkies to descend at a reasonable cost and make a full weekend of it that could be the answer.

At the Wassail tonight I had a word with Nigel at the Fleece Inn, Bretforton, where Teresa sang on a couple of Shellbacks Cookley weekend tours, and also at Foxtrot weekends. The pub has camping facilities and a tithebarn for singing. Nigel would be more than willing to host it if a suitable weekend is available (it's in demand for weddings, etc).

PM me for contact details if you want to talk dates with Nigel

Surreysinger,

Not really, but that's not what Mrs Duck asked for: I merely supplied one possible answer to her specific request. Feel free to investigate alternative venues - the more the better.

Bus timetable for Bretforton. There are railway stations at Honeybourne (2.5miles) and Evesham (5.5 miles).

For B&B etc Google "B&B Bretforton" or "hotel Bretforton" or "inn Bretforton" etc

There must be somewhere a bit more central although I can't think of any 'off the top of my head'. Oh there's Norwell but the pub's a bit small.
The weekend of the 9th April is Banbury Song weekend - perhaps something could happen there - someone would need to contact Merek and Dary. However it would be good to organise a whole weekend for Theresa. I'm sure Ugthorpe Lodge near Whitby would love to host a weekend but it's a bit too far north presumably. Or perhaps Alcester's song Weekend venue would suit?
How about Preston, Angie and Ken's venue, not the school but the pub where's the 4 Fools is this year?
Any other ideas?

Bretforton sounds good (and the barn has a good sound). I would be interested.
I also have an additional suggestion.
Whatever date / venue is decided upon we are not all going to be able to make it. So Yes to a Memorial Concert but why not a lot of others does as well.
For the rest of this year why don't we all remember Theresa in the way she would like best. At EVERY festival we have connections with, let's persuade the organisers to nominate one of the Sing-a-Rounds as the "Theresa Tooley Memorial Sing-a-Round" and let's all sing our favourite songs that we sang with T. That way every-one can join in somewhere.
Pass the thought on.

Vaughan's suggestion (Snuffy) is also something I would support.

Theresa had one of her songs sung for her at the Sussex Sing on Saturday where there were quite a few of her Sussex Shellback friends.
Sorry not to make the funeral, but she will be remembered for a very long time.
