Dear Mr Sale
I am glad you have secured Mr Holt; for in addition to my other disabilities I have such a bad cold that unless it improves I shall not be worth much on Sunday.
I shall, however, be very glad to help you by entertaining Mr Holt on Sunday unless you have made other arrangements. I will write to him anyhow.
Yours very truly

Jack Perbedy

18th September 2023 | Clubs and Societies, Community

It is with great sadness that The Kibworth Band announce the death, just short of his 101st birthday of their President Jack Perbedy. As we wrote in the Chronicle this time last year as he celebrated his 100th birthday, Jack was a Kibworth lad who never forgot his roots. In gratitude and appreciation of his musical start with the Kibworth  Band, where he rose from player to conductor in a short period of time, he became a lifelong supporter of Kibworth and many other local bands.
