Re: Hebburn Iona
My Grandad, John Foy was one of the founding members of the Iona on Argyle Street. I believe he may have been Chairman, but I am happy to be corrected on that one. My Uncle, also John Foy was steward and my dad and other uncles have served on the committee over the years.
I donít remember my Uncle Eddie being much involved, as he lived in Wardley before moving to Yorkshire.
My Grandad was definitely Concert Chairman for a number of years and I believe he ran quite a tight ship. A recent anecdote I was told was that he paid off Chubby Brown before The show even started because he was blaspheming!
