14th July Gala
The crowds turned out in force to support the event, the weather was glorious, and the Mayor
& Lady Mayoress graciously attended to open the event for us.
Musical entertainment was provided throughout the afternoon by 'The Ireland Colliery Band', 'The Honey Belles' and 'Cooke & Sons - Traditional Street Organ Grinders'
Kiddies rides, and the Punch & Judy Man kept the children entertained. And food was
available thanks to the efforts of the ladies in the Church Hall and outdoor barbecue.
There were demonstrations of stone carving by 'Daynes Stone Masons', the blessing of the Well
dressing and dozens of stalls to browse and buy
And to set the tone for the theme of the event our re-enactor friend - Haydn - dressed in full WW1 uniform and with a stall packed with WW1 equipment and artefacts was kept busy answering questions and posing for photos.
Our thanks to everyone for their help and support
Details of the ‘Brimington Remembers’ Armistice Day November Event will be published as soon the plans have been agreed
100th Anniversary of the End of the First World War
With the centenary of the ending of the Great War on the 11th November this year - we are planning to organize TWO special events to commemorate & remember Brimington’s sacrifice’s during those terrible four years.
Still in the planning stage and with volunteers from many of our village groups and organization's we are hoping to raise enough funds to hold events on:
14th July & 11th November
During our latest visit to Belgium we called at Poelcapelle again and were saddened to see that the 'Cafe De Zwann' ( see Fred Greaves page) had been demolished.
