      Update from the Page owner

      To all of you who were taught by Pete, who worked with Pete, heard him play, were friends, acquaintances, or only knew him by reputation, our heart-felt thanks go out to you for your generosity to the award we wish to set up in Pete's name. We are so very proud of him and miss him more than we can say, but all of you have helped to continue his passion for music and his spirit will live on. We will now begin working with the music tutors and schools and colleges to identify those who need a little help to let their musical gift develop to ultimately be "as good as Pete". If you wish to be included in newsletters of our progress with distributing the Pete Handley Percussion Award please send your email address to lesterhandley@gmail.com. Our Christmas tree this year is a tribute to the ginger legend who is sorely missed. With our gratitude, Sara, Lester & Tim Handley

      I could have watched Pete play all day. He was a wonderful person to be around. This is such a lovely way for him to go on inspiring others, just as he inspired me.

      Thank you, Pete, for your infectious enthusiasm, inspiration, and love for percussion that you have passed on to so many, including Charlie. What a fitting legacy for a truly inspirational man.
