Old Buddies Jam Buddy - St Remigius Church, Hethersett, resounded to the strains of late fifties rock as a group of friends got together to revive the music of Buddy Holly. Old Buddies Jamming is the loose name for a group of musicians who get together on an occasional basis in different formats to jam and play music. On this occasion “five old friends” provided the backdrop with one of them travelling to Hethersett from Spain for the evening. The group consisted of John Head on guitar and vocals, Bill Peterkin (guitar and vocals), Robert Kett (rhythm guitar), Ross Anderson (bass guitar and vocals) and Simon McDougall (drums). The evening of nostalgia was well supported by a very appreciative audience who donated over £500 in aid of church funds. Church members provided a buffet.


Brian's Return - Hethersett Methodist Church began a year of celebrations to mark the 25th anniversary of Operation New Look which transformed the antiquated building into a modern one with a special service that saw the return of the Rev Brian Dann.
