Thanks Les, for starting this. Pete Coe did a fund-raiser back in November for us and this annual event builds on the goodwill that was much in evidence at last year's initial get-together. This launched the Scholarship Fund as well as being a celebration of George's tireless activity for the greater good.
We have a CD readied for release with 12 tracks of George's singing plus Jim James on guitar and anyone who can't be there next weekend and who would like a copy (£5) is welcome to give us a call on the numbers above. There will be admissions on the door as well as the advance tickets.
