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.

From Richard: "As we are in self isolation, we can only dream about jolly holidays and coach trips to exotic destinations like Wigan or Pontefract. To remind us of the joys of being crammed in a coach, the smell of sweaty bodies, stale chips, screaming kids and longing for a pee, I attach the music for ‘National Express’ by The Divine Comedy. You’ll probably remember it".PDF National Express (Divine Comedy)

I see in today’s paper that Julie Felix has died, aged 81 after a short illness. Amazing that she was performing almost to the end. I guess the highlight of her career was Rugby 2019 as support act to the world famous Spa Strummers. - (Richard)
