    RIP Lenny Old

    Very sad to hear this news. He did some great work with the youth in the area supporting and encouraging them. His Durham weekend courses were excellent and he will be very much missed.

    Lenny - it's not the best accommodation in the world but your stuff is normally safe. People are nice at summer school. If you are worried, don't take any valuables. You'll have make sure you find out the group that drink in the Red Lion. That's the evening watering hole!!

    Five rivers brass (now Backworth) have done a few tv appearances. I remember doing one when we recorded for the beginning of 'Cashing in'. I was briefly on the news when I played with Greggs band as the Queen opened the Millenium bridge in Gateshead.
