Remembrance Sunday falls, this year, on the 13th Novemeber and, as usual, we will be supporting the service in our Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul. The service commences at 10.45am. Beforehand there will be a short wreath laying service at the war memorial (near the fire station) at 10.15am where the last post will be sounded.
The British Legion and the band would like to thank the 1st Wadhurst Scouts for their help in setting up the Commemoration Hall for this evening’s British Legion Poppy Concert. It was a welcome surprise to come to the hall this afternoon and find chairs set out for the audience. We are sure we can tempt people away from their TVs and come and have a great evening supporting the Legion – they can catch up on “Strictly” later!! Thank you so much!
We are back after a summer break busy preparing for our 28th British Legion Poppy Concert which is just a month away on 1st October. The concert raises funds for the Legion’s Poppy Appeal, organised locally by the Wadhurst and Tidebrook Branch. The funds provide lifelong support for the Armed Forces community – serving men and women, veterans, and their families. The concert, in the Commemoration Hall, starts at 8pm and tickets are £6 in advance from Carillon Cottage, High Street, Wadhurst or £6.50 on the door. Please come along for a great evening of music and supporting such a good cause too!
Though it is still only summer – and we are taking time out performing as we rehearse for the British Legion Poppy Concert on 1st October – we thought we would mention the great brass band concerts coming up this winter at the Hawth Theatre in Crawley. There are 6 top bands coming to The Hawth starting with Desford Colliery Band on 2nd October and finishing with Black Dyke on 19th March, with the Grimethorpe, Carlton Main, Fairy and Virtuosi Gus bands in-between. So when that cold weather is upon us The Hawth on a Sunday is a great place to be!!
The sun shone and a superb tea was served as we entertained the guests at the Wadhurst History Society’s Garden Party on Sunday (24th July). Such a lovely day, in a charming garden, with great views across the Weald!! And we were looked after superbly too!! We are very grateful to Georgina Edwards (a local photographer) who captured the afternoon has kindly let us use her images.
