Desperate Hurst Wives

Liz brought this YouTube video to my attention. It features her daughter-in-law Samantha Nixon (in top hat and tails) and friends from Hurstpierpoint (hence the name) doing a charity show. Maybe not jazz in content but certainly in spirit and the girls are a class act.

Thanks Lance for highlighting the girls. I am of course hugely proud of Samantha, she is a lovely young woman, talented & kind, not forgetting a great wife & mum. So well done to the Desperate Hurst Wives, may you continue to strut your stuff!
