A proud moment for Dave Jenkins, founder and leader of the Spa Strummers, as he received an award from the Mayor of Royal Leamington Spa at the Town Hall May 2019. The award was for the Spa Strummers community and charity work and contribution to the Life of the Town over 7 years. The citation mentioned performing at many local and nationwide events including care homes, church charity concerts and village fetes. Also faciltating and encouraging many beginners to take up the ukulele to have fun and make music with others.
