NEWS
Harry Thrush

It is with sadness that we pass on the news that Veteran Harry Thrush has passed away on Christmas Eve. Harry was well known and liked on the 1940s scene and he will be missed by many. Harry was always cheerful and had time for everyone, especially those that enjoyed his rendition of 'D-Day Dodgers' that he would perform at events with Paul & Natasha Harper. Harry's funeral will take place at St Mary's Parish Church on Town Street in Beeston, Leeds, at 12.45pm on Wednesday 13th January and his family are calling for people to attend and pay their respects.
