It was good to see such a strong turn out for Tony Brooker’s funeral. It was a very emotional day for us. Tony’s partner Cherry and his many friends organised a warm and fitting tribute to him. His friends were legion and a common refrain from people he has been helping out for a long time was “What are we going to do now that Tony is gone?” He is sadly missed.
Too much of a good thing?
Luke’s goes from strength to strength. We had 58 people on the 25th February and 56 on 3rd March. We are a little concerned that we don’t grow too much bigger.
Although we want to maintain our welcoming and friendly atmosphere, the terms of our agreement with Kingston Council are that the hall is limited to 60, so we are not actively recruiting new members at the moment.
We have completed 2 of our 6 planned sessions on Thursday evenings.
If you are quick, it’s not too late to join this small group to learn the basics.
These classes aren’t compulsory for newbies. You can still attend on a Tuesday evening with no experience. See the News & Events page of the website for more details.
Thanks for those who have asked to be members of LEGS.

Free electrical tagging.
Electrical equipment used in our hall should be tagged.
Andrew has arranged to have this done at no cost to you on Tuesday 10th March. So bring along your amps and stuff.
