There is a special music event in aid of the Mayor Spelthorne's Charities at Sunbury Cricket Club on Friday 8th February at 8.30.
It’s become something of a tradition that the Club devotes one of its Music Nights to a special event to support the Mayor of Spelthorne’s charities, and they have proved extremely successful evenings, so the Club is delighted to repeat the exercise this year.
This year’s Mayor of Spelthorne is Cllr. Jean Pinkerton OBE, a Staines councillor, and her charities are East To West, offering support to children, young people and their families; Rentstart, assisting single people and childless couples to access accommodation; Shopmobility, helping people with mobility problems to get around; and The Penrose Club, providing social activities for adults with special needs. The usual suspects from Sunbury’s talented music fraternity have been assembled once more to play under the name of THE CHAIN GANG in honour of the Mayor’s chain of office. The musicians will be giving their services free, so all the door money will go to the charities - entrance is £10.00, payable on the door (tickets are not being sold in advance).
The line-up will include guitarists Gerry Cook (The Saxons, The Hampton Band),Tim Renton (3 AM), Mark Doyle (Marshall Taylor Band), Chris Allard (Hampton Band); bassists Roger Harding (East of Eden), Martin House (Life & Soul; keyboard player Kevin Welling (Stan Bland Band); harmonica ace Geoff Foreste; multi-instrumentalist Phil Miller-Tate (Marshall Taylor Band); Stephane Booroof (Edison Lighthouse) and Alan Worrell (drums) plus Music Night host and organiser Paul Watts (vocals & guitar). It will be a great night of top class rock ‘n’ roll, blues, ‘60s R&B, rock and country, with the first set devoted to the music of Buddy Holly, who died in a plane crash 60 years ago this week.
It’s all for a great cause and will be a fun community night, so please support it. Please note that the show will start at 8.30pm. Hot food will be available from about 7pm.
