Ray Chester

Just to give you an update on Ray Chester. He still remains very poorly and is being moved from Hospital to a respite home in Houghton. The Consultants are doubtful that he will ever return to his home which is extremely sad. I'm sure you would all like to wish him well.

Sad news indeed Mia. I have a lot of respect for Ray both as a musician and as a person. He has done much to keep big band music alive.
May he find peace and comfort in his new surrounds.
