JUST a short email expressing my gratitude to yourself for the inclusion of several photographs and the story with reference to the 80th birthday surprise gathering my son Mark and I arranged for Mr Harry Brierley, aka Jersey Joe, at The Hollies Cafe nearly two weeks ago.
As you mentioned in your local paper it was a huge success!
As I was marshalling the event with the help of my son Mark, Mr Jim Read from Lincolnshire, and a member of the security staff from the cafe!
We believe there were around 40-45 commercial vehicles in attendance and everybody who came to this one-off event had a thoroughly good time even though it was a very cold morning!
All the feedback my son has received regarding the event has been about the organisation of the event and the standard of food that was on offer at The Hollies which was second to none!
Mr Alan Wilkes,
