(27) Dark Berkshire – Another trip to “Lawford-Land” loomed so advance train tickets were booked. The trip was set for early November.

(24) Berkshire / twinned with North London – (get this) An announcement was made today re a Guinness Book of World Records attempt at simultaneous singing, in the most nationalities, John Lennon’s classic song, ‘Imagine’… As of today, it was anticipated that 80 nationalities, across the globe, would take part in the event on October 9, John’s birthday. (The current World Record is 72.)

- Keith had played a very, very small part in organising the event, and was instrumental in booking the evening’s entertainment, the fabulous John Lennon singer and look-a-like, Jimmy Coburn from the Cavern Club Beatles… The star, organiser and brainchild of the event was Laurence Lameche, Keith’s pal of over 25 years. “Watch this space!”
