A Message from John Hassell (14th October 2016):

What a terrific effort today (Concorde 1066) was.  The children's parade was the highlight of the day for me - 500 or so children dressed in tabards and balaclavas marching and really entering into the spirit of things. The church service, the band - their music and marching on The Green and the moving lowering of the flags ceremony at dusk, all gave the town a real focus, togetherness and sense of history. Alison & I, and Mike & Pam Saunders were lucky enough to represent the club at the Vin d’Honneur this evening that was the culmination of the day’s events.

Muffin men and wives provided 26 marshals today that closed the roads twice during the day and provided crowd support in the High Street. It was a great effort by many and very much appreciated by the day’s organising team. Simon Merrick made special mention of this and the Muffins in his concluding speech this evening. 

Thanks to all who gave their time so generously - the day really couldn’t have happened without you!

A well supported fun evening on the 14 July 2016 raised funds for Alzheimers Research.

Members and guests in assorted 1940's dress were entertained by the excellent Victory Sisters who provided a stunning repertoire of WW2 classics.

The music continued through the fish and chip supper and afterwards with music-accompanied slide shows of images from the period. Although produced for the evening the two slide shows are to be recycled by Ray Broomfield, the principal organiser of the event, in a tour of local Care Homes that treat patients suffering from Alzheimers. The first of these memory-joggers has already taken place and has been very well received.

The final figure for the evening was £1000, a cheque for which was presented by Ray Broomfield to Rebecca Futrall, fund raiser for Alzheimers Research.
