Thread Name: what happened to Ian Stewart (Poynton FC resident)
Subject: RE: Ian Stewart (Poynton FC resident)
Robin plays in a dance band and I occasionally play with them, depending on how many members they need or who's available. I think I can safely say that Robin's banjo playing has improved since those days. With the band, I tend to play mostly mandolin.

Dave Rawlinson got himself a plum job as Chief Executive of Salisbury City Council and has since retired. Not seen Arthur for a while since he retired for a second time. He was working in Stockport, pounding the beat as a community warden. In more recent times, I hear that he's been gainfully employed as the Mayor's (his wife) consort in Bollington.   

Being a resident musician wasn't that bad - it was mainly the venue we didn't like - and you got to see and meet all the big names for free. I don't think Poynton had a regular residency after we left which destroys continuity. The problem at the Deanwater was that we wanted to play and Ian wanted to run a club.

Do you see anything of Will Willliams? - used to run the club at the Globe in Glossop; in fact the last person to book Nick Jones.
