To celebrate his 90th Birthday, Derek invited many friends and family, from far and wide, to a large and splendid party in the Village Hall on the 4th February, 2010. The hall was packed. Following many speeches, John Surry and Mike Southgate gave a very amusing rendition, based on Flanders & Swan, about Derek's life - concluding with a "This is your Life" presentation.
