Organisers of the Sheffield branch of the GFS, Ian and Pam Walker, are stepping down after twelve years in charge at the Worsborough branch. Stepping in to their shoes is GFS assistant treasurer and dedicated Formby fan, Andy Poppleton. Andy has been a very active member of the Society for some years and at the Blackpool conventions he runs a very successful tuition class. He is a very fine player and it is without a doubt that the Sheffield branch will be in safe hands under Andy’s stewardship.

The Sheffield branch has been running for x number of years and was of course the local branch of much missed ex President of the GFS, the late Dennis Taylor.

The club runs from Worsborough Sports Club and features a large stage for performers to show their talents on.

Notable members are brilliant left-handed player Peter Nixon; GFS shop girls Kathryn Pollard and Pat Taylor, GFS committee members Daz Barry, Alan Kershaw, ukulele maestro Eddie Uttley, GFS drummer Dale Norman
