But John has been a priceless asset of the group for many years, helping out with the backstage tasks in 1997,1999, 2000, 2002, 2004 then each year to 2010 and again in 2013.

John’s cameo role this year is one of the comical highlights of the panto. Once seen, never forgotten, or should it be once forgotten, never seen!
