Last Tuesday’s meeting was tinged with a little sadness for we will soon be losing one of our stalwart members. Mike is heading back north permanently to enjoy a well earned retirement. There have been very few weeks when Mike didn’t add to our evening with his company and well-honed jokes. His claim to fame will always be as warm-up for the Bongo Bongo band at the Rye Arts Festival a couple of years ago – a role thrust upon him very suddenly.
A fond farewell was helped along with one of Justine’s amazing cakes, decorated to depict Mike’s favourite railway themed songs. Good luck Mike with a long and very happy retirement and don’t forget to pop back and see us – keep strumming.
