Whetstone priest celebrates 50th anniversary of her former pop-group The Settlers
A priest who used to be in pop-folk group The Settlers joined her former roadies to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary on Saturday.
Reverend Cindy Kent of St John the Apostle Church in Whetstone was joined by former band members John Fyffe and Geoffrey Srodzinski to reminisce about the good old days.
The Settlers’ biggest hit was The Lightening Tree which was the theme song from hit television series, Follyfoot.
The group were regulars on screen, performing with Sir Cliff Richard as well as on numerous Morcambe and Wise shows.
Rev Kent said: "I remember that we met on February 12 in 1963 and thought this would be a good time to get together and celebrate.
"We had a great career and met some fabulous people and saw so many parts of the world.
"Although my career has taken a completely different turn in the last few years, it's still great that I'm in touch with the guys. We went through so much together and they feel like my family.
"The party was a huge success and we reminisced about the old days with everyone who was there.”
The fourth member of the band, Mike Jones, passed away five years ago but Rev Kent still keeps in touch with John and Geoffrey as well as their former roadies including Tony Hooper from The Strawbs.
