John and Michael Clayton.

Hello Everybody,
Welcome to my August and September Newsletter. I would like to express my thanks and those of The Flames to the many of you who have commented so positively on my new CD. We enjoyed recording the CD and it is always pleasing that those of you who have purchased it are also enjoying it.

Support for ‘Help For Heroes’.
Some weeks ago I was contacted by Michael Clayton, one of the many volunteers around the country who are arranging events to raise funds to assist our many service personnel who sadly have been injured in the service of our country. Michael has arranged a ‘Help For Heroes’ Fete on Saturday 15th August at Yapton Village Green, Yapton, Nr.Arundel and has kindly asked me if I would like to attend. This I am happy to do and as such will be attending to assist this very worthwhile cause. The Fete commences at 1p.m.

August sees me in Concert with The Flames on Sunday 9th at ‘The Reelin’ & Rockin’ Summer Weekend event at The Spa Complex, Seafront, Scarborough, North Yorks. Other Artistes appearing during the weekend include ‘The Jets’, The Firebirds, The Lee Jackson Band, The Skiprats and others.
On the Saturday 5th September in Plymouth with The Flames and on Friday 25th September in Lincoln with Craig Douglas and The Flames.
