2nd Oct Singaround
9th Oct

Bert Draycott -- we're very sad to learn that Bertie has died suddenly at home a few weeks short of his 87th birthday. We're not trying to replace him as our guest tonight but propose to make this a night to remember him and celebrate the joie de vivre he showed in his performances. (Free entry) A collection and raffle for Age UK raised over £200 which the Club has topped up to £250. Thanks to all who attended our Remembering Bertie night and who donated.
