GOODBYE DEREK
At the Strummers meeting on Monday 10th December 2018 Thirty four group members wished bon voyage to Derek Babb who is leaving Lostwithiel to be near to his family in Cambridegshire.
 
Derek joined the Strummers in 2014 and has been a regular attender to Strummers meeting and concerts. To wish him on his way instead of the usual tea and biscuits we indulged ourselves with lovely mince pies, Christmas brownies and chocolates.

Strummers members Derek Babb (83) and Pam Manasseh (85) celebrated their Octogenarian Birthdays at the meeting held on 18th September 20017. We had two lovely cakes baked by Rosie Smith and presentation of cards and a certificate. Both members started playing the Ukulele just a few years ago when they joined the group - It’s never too late to start doing something new!
