New members and Interesting speakers

Welcome to two new Members

 

The club is very pleased to welcome its two latest recruits.

Graham Lynch joined the club a couple of months ago and Hugh Sweenie became a member on 5th February. We look forward to fellowship with them both.

We also welcome Jim Hamilton and Stewart Slater who joined us at the end of last year.

 

 

The Speakers

We have had some excellent speakers recently and last week Peter Yates kept members highly entertained with the story of how he rescued Eric Morcambe’s Rolls Royce from a car scrap yard in Shrewsbury. Peter stripped the car down to its shell and then told how he painstakingly but lovingly restored it. Mike Fountain spoke after Peter (they are good friends) and told the club about the 16 years he worked as chauffer for Eric. It was no surprise to hear the names of some of the famous people from the world of entertainment whom Mike had driven eg. Arthur Askey (a great pal of Eric’s), Judi Dench and Michael Crawford to name but a few. Morecambe and Wise was such a popular TV team that it was good to hear from someone who knew them both well that off the screen they were two good blokes.
