The Annual Bill Barber Concert held at the Palmer-Morewood Club, Alfreton, and organised by the Rotary Club of Ripley was hailed as a great success with over 140 guests attending. The concert is so named in memory of Rtn Bill Barber who first suggested the idea.
The concert provides a night out for local people who do not get out as much as they would like. They are picked up from the residence taken to the concert, entertained by local artists, served refreshments in the interval and taken home afterwards.
Compere for the evening was Rtn Stuart Rice who thanked the artistes, the Brian Scott Sound, and vocalist/guitarist Dave Grant, The Community Transport Drivers, the Swanwick Scouts, Futures Homscope and the Palmer-Morewood Club for their help in making it a very successful evening.
He then introduced president Paul Rose who presented flowers to Barbara Rice, Billy Thompson and Cheryl Upton thanking them for their help and Rtn Stuart Rice for organising the event.
