‘Brimington Remembers’

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

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.
