IT was show­biz time for 160 se­nior cit­i­zens when Ash­ford Ro­tary Club hosted its 23rd year of Ro­tary En­ter­tains for the el­derly. Songs were per­formed at Nor­ton Knatch­bull School on Sun­day with pupils from the Show­biz Academy, which has branches in both Ash­ford and Folke­stone, sing­ing num­bers from West End mu­si­cals. The pro­gramme in­cluded Den­nis Lea, a mem­ber of the Ge­orge Formby So­ci­ety. He played the ukulele and talked about the life and times of the ukelele king. Also en­ter­tain­ing were the Love to Sing Ash­ford Com­mu­nity Choir, set up by Tessa Fine­man, the county’s mu­sic ad­viser for schools.
