Joined on stage by a local councillor
Rochdale comedian Jimmy Cricket was joined on stage by a local councillor at a recent charity show.
The Irish funnyman was performing at St Joseph’s Centre in Heywood to help raise money for the Roman Catholic parish.
Counc Peter Rush, who represents the Heywood North ward and ran the town’s Albany Hotel on Rochdale Road East for a long time, went on stage to join Jimmy and his wife May and their good friend Eric Devereaux, a well-known singer on the North West entertainment scene.
Jimmy also had his picture taken alongside sisters Katie and Rebecca who were in the audience.
Their mum Nicola told Jimmy: “We had an amazing time on Friday night at St Joseph’s. We hope that you will come again very soon to do another show. Take care and keep entertaining.”
