In celebration of the anniversary of Dusty's birthday tomorrow, I've arranged for a new flower arrangement to be placed on the headstone in Henley churchyard. As always, Annette March of The White Garden florist in the town has produced a beautiful arrangement, as you can see from the photographs attached. The 'Let's Talk Dusty' flowers are those closer to the camera; thank you to everyone who has made donations in the past which make these tributes possible.
I've been in touch with David Hay-Gibson (of The Facebook community The Official Dusty Springfield Fan Club) today, and I suspect that the other central floral tribute is the one which he has arranged; it's worth saying that David arranged for the headstone to be cleaned once again this week. All those members from outside the UK who are visiting in order to attend Dusty Day next weekend will thus get to see the tributes against the best possible backdrop.
I'm very much looking forward to meeting friends both established and new next weekend. I hope those who are coming long distances have safe travels.
With best regards,
