Forwarded by Mick from Gill who I was mentioning last week – a delightful addition to the collection from the early days. Gill said:
“I wondered if you would like the attached pic of the Crestas for the collection. Perhaps you took the photograph? The venue was probably the Coop Hall – 1960 ish – and I think that the figure in the background might be Tony Porter, who managed the group.
As a member of the Crestas ( I think that the Vauxhall Cresta had something to do with the choice of name) it was, for some reason, deemed necessary for me to have a stage name – Diane McKay. I have always regretted that we did not save more memorabilia from those days, but I know that we shall always be very grateful that you did, Mick !
Very best wishes,
Gill Glover (nee Hutchins).
P.S. My other half – Mick (Glover) – would want me to send his regards too. ( He is still playing gigs, incidentally…..)”
