There will be a short service at  Stockport Crem 3.30 and then a celebration of his life and meal at St Mary’s Church Hall, Elbow street levesnhulme at 4.00 p.m. At this event there will be an open mike opportunity to talk about your memories of Malcolm (funny as well as  serious) and there will also be some entertainment as requsted by Malcolm. There will also be a group of our African friends dancing for him. It wll be the send off he wanted so lets make it a day to remember so NO SADNESS, NO BLACK CLOTHES, NO TIES, NO SUITS (although scruffy jumpers are a must – espeically with a pen hanging from the neck) and  if you have sandels wear them and we will drink his health in tea. ( a bar is also available ).

If you intend to come to the celebration at St Marys then please let me know for the caterers (also if you have any dietry requirements – although lets face it you can’t be any fussier than Malcom was)

More information regarding the venues (including maps and postcodes – and parking) will be on this blog (and on a friendly facebook page) by the end of this week.
