Jimmy Cricket recently visited the tea rooms at the Healey Dell Nature Reserve on the outskirts of Rochdale where he lives.
He was at the delightful Healey Dell Heritage Centre & Tea Rooms with Mrs Cricket as a treat for both of them and they enjoyed an afternoon tea consisting of sandwiches, scones and cakes.
The famous entertainer bumped into Tim, manager of the centre, while he was there (right).
Jimmy explained: “The reason for the visit stems back to my 70th birthday last October, as one of the gifts I received from the many wonderful presents I got was a voucher to these Dell Tea Rooms!
“Since my birthday, I have not had too many chances to use the voucher due to work commitments, but I managed to get there last Sunday and both I and Mrs Cricket had a wonderful afternoon.”
The Healey Dell Heritage Centre & Tea Rooms is a non-profit organisation run entirely by unpaid volunteers.
