Les Berridge is what Hucknall is all about

CAN I just compliment Dispatch editor Richard Silverwood on his article in last week’s Dispatch about the retirement of Hucknall darts supremo Les Berridge.

Having known Les all my life, I can bear testament to all that the article said.

When I was chairman of Ashfield District Council in 2005, Les gave me some advice, all of it good. Nothing to do with politics but to help me avoid making mistakes on a subject that I knew precious little about.

It only remains for me to add that I wish Les a long and healthy retirement.

He and his like are what Hucknall is all about.

CHARLIE SHORT,

Storth Avenue,

Hucknall.
