The event was held  for Sheila Selby at Haydock conservative Club at the end of January.

Jimmy, who provided the entertainment, said: “I was honoured to have participated in this special event.

“I was also thrilled to have met both Sheila and her husband, who had been together in marriage for a total of 61 years!”

You may have noticed that the events calendar on this website is still not working properly.

The October dates are all there, but not the ones for November even though they were inputted by the web team several weeks ago.

They will appear once November arrives, but we realise that is of no use to those of you wanting to find out where Jimmy is a month or two in advance.

So again please accept our apologies and while we try to identify and correct the fault, here is Jimmy’s schedule in November – as always events are subject to change, of course.
