I spent many enjoyable hours in Alf’s company: Many, many years back Alf, myself, Alan and Viv, Deano and Ste Connor had some great Sunday afternoons (and evenings) in The Pear Tree. A bite to eat and plenty of pints discussing rugby, football, life but mostly soul music…
Alf was just a lovely fella and in his memory there is a bit of a do in the Old Courts on Sunday 30 September..
