Jacky Denton - Funeral Announcement

Jacky Denton's Funeral takes place at Gateshead Crematorium Saltwell Road South on Wednesday August 25 at 12 Noon*. The crem is accessible by bus or car from Durham Road, Low Fell. The 28a from Eldon Square or Gateshead Metro** passes the Crem gates as does the 29 from Gateshead although the 29 is a longer journey. The Humanist service will be followed by drinks and food at Holly Hill Sports and Social Club, Benson Tce., Felling. Please pass on the information to Jacky's friends and fellow musicians.
Pat has asked if any musicians would like to play at the Crem she'd be delighted and also back at the club at 1300.
Let's make this sad occasion the joyous one Jacky would have wished.
Lance.
* Not 10:30 as originally announced.
** The 28a is once an hour from Eldon Square Bus Station at 20 minutes past the hour and from Gateshead Metro at 32 minutes past.
