Friday 29th - Sunday 31st AUGUST 2014

What an amazing weekend this was.  We had visitors from Birmingham, London and other places far and wide.  In all, we estimate that 1200 people visited our Commemorative Weekend.  

Thank you so very much for all of those who came and especially to those who helped to make it happen by making poppies, delivering poppies, manning stalls, making cakes and all of the other things that made it possible.

We surely did those lads proud.
