The Zoots perform at Birds Hill Golf Club

Christine first came to see the band with my Uncle Robert in 2010 on their first date at The Coppid Beech Hotel in Bracknell. After a happy first date and a further five years together with my ‘Uncle Rob’, he sadly passed away in 2015 with cancer. Uncle Rob was an amazing man and we all miss him so much.
