Greetings from a sunny Normandie.
I am grateful to Ashmead and the Watkins family for providing me with the opportunities to enter the world of music. Am still playing, and involved in banding, jazz, and arranging music. Will soon be going to the USA for a series of concerts and to see some of the many friends you meet because of music.
We regret the passing of people such as Derek, George Rackley, Roger Pearcey, and of course George and Ted.
Have rediscovered Ray Lawrence and Dave Gash. Ray is the longest still serving member of Springs.
We lost Roger 3 years ago. Roger was the key driver in finding and sharing recorded test pieces played by Springs Gardens. I have copies of these recordings and will be happy to share them with band members.
Am looking forward to developing these contacts in the future.
