WHAT A big, big thank you to the wonderful youth that we have around us today. During nearly 50 years in showbiz and management I wish to say I have seen some fantastic performances at the London Palladium, Venice and Broadway but in this little back garden of ours, thanks to the wonderful music teacher at the Kings of Wessex School, Jane Lincoln, who bought together over 25 teenagers to perform some of the most beautiful tunes I have ever heard, it might have been a fathers' day Wurzels special, but I would like to call it the Kings of Wessex day special.As I was ill, my friend Chris wheeled my bed to the balcony. Not many times in our life can we get a wonderful music teacher to bring together a performance like this, because what made it all the more spectacular was that the students were overjoyed to meet Justin Lee Collins from Channel 4's Friday Night Project. And from Simon Cowell's programme Britain's Got Talent, there was Don the Whistler who got voted off. No wonder he got voted off, he can go and whistle up on Crook Peak the next time! But I would just like to say I don't think we give enough thanks to the wonderful teachers that put in so much time and don't get a penny, so I hope all of you at Kings of Wessex appreciate what a music teacher you've got - and I'm sure there are many others too.I hope the children in the Children's Hospice at the Downs, in Bristol, with all the funds that were raised, will have not just a smile but another light memory for another second. And I hope Kings of Wessex enjoys their donation because they deserve it. And another good critic would like to congratulate you. It is the one and only June Whitfield, who popped in after filming Last of the Summer Wine and we showed her the video of the afternoon. She said she will be having words with certain people at the BBC. Thanks to my partner Chris from all the people who enjoyed that wonderful afternoon that we shall not forget.DENNIS HEYMER - Wavering Down House, Cross
