A DONCASTER-born octogenarian was left overwhelmed - as a school reunion really did hit the right note.

Dennis Huby, 84, returned to his home village of Armthorpe for the specially-arranged brass and voices concert organised by old pal Haydn Griffiths.

But Dennis, who brought his Brackley Male Voice Choir to play alongside Haydn’s Armthorpe Elmfield Band, did not know nine other school friends, not seen for more than 60 years, had been invited.

Haydn, 84, hailed Saturday’s sell-out concert as “fantastic”.
