Received in the Parlour by the Mayor of Lambeth Councillor Clive Bennett – Saturday 7 July 2012

Tony Moody with his galaxy of stars from Jamaica’s glorious cricketing past, were received with enormous enthusiasm by invited guests, family and friends in the presence of the Mayor and our Chief Executive. Although the fast bowling ferocity and run rates have moderated with time the sporting elegance and love of the game was there for us all to applaud ahead of their match at the Oval against a vintage England Eleven.  Such was the depth of assembled talent, the Mayor was anxious to find a copy of Wisdens but not before being in the audience on home turf at St Leonard’s Church for a most memorable performance of `Dido and Aeneas’ from the Streatham Choral Society and the Aurelian Ensemble under the musical direction of Simon Gregory.
