"We were extremely pleased with our entertainment on Thursday. EVERYONE enjoyed Derek giving his George Formby Tribute . Derek came to the venue early and greeted the members as they arrived - which pleased them enormously! I think the members enjoy an entertainment rather than a serious talk - called escapism!"

When I’m Cleaning Windows “Ooooh,if you could see what I can see” Thank you for a great night. Everyone was saying how much they enjoyed it. Especially seeing me make a fool of myself! The older guy who had the Fez on had a great time. We have never seen him laugh that much before. Thank you again, your George Formby tribute was really good.”
