I remember Johnny Prescott singing at the front of the class for everyone. Tulips from Amsterdam if I'm not mistaken. Best wishes to everyone

Comment by: Chris Southworth on 21st October 2011 at 19:16

Aye, R.I.P. Bobby.51! No age that is it? I think I saw him in my local pub, The Alex in Hindley Green about 10 yrs ago with some friends or family.
By the way,I think it was me who used to come 2nd most of the time! (No smiley things on here like on mobiles!)
