Please do make an effort to attained the AGM on the 4th December.
The majority of the existing officers are standing down and these roles need to be filled. There is a real potential that the Chamber will cease in its current form if this doesn’t happen. An opportunity exists to shape the future of the Chamber, defining its role, goals and purpose so please do get involved!
On April 6th Bromyard Town Centre once again reverberated to the sound of cars from years gone by. Attracting over seven thousand visitors across the day spectators were able to enjoy a spectacle of over 200 cars and bikes, a recreated ‘Williams Engineering’ and even a re-enactment of the Italian Job!
Pete Jackson is retired and lives at Upper Sapey with wife Pauline who is a dog agility trainer who competes nationally. Pete is 70 in August, full of fun and always one up for a challenge so he thought he would mark this special life anniversary by carrying out a Special POPPY PARISH WALK for charity. He is a seasoned walker and has previously taken part in sponsored walks in the UK and Africa. Being a member of the Bromyard Branch of the Royal British Legion he has decided to link in with their WW1 commemorations to mark the end of WW1 so his walk will form part of the `Bromyard Everyone Remembered` events.
His 70 mile POPPY PARISH WALK will see him visit the war memorial in most of the parishes surrounding Bromyard and Winslow District. At each memorial visited he will leave a Bromyard By-Pass Poppy bearing the message `Bromyard Remembering Everyone`.
The last Poppy that he will carry with him throughout his POPPY PARISH WALK Pete will lay at the Cenotaph at the Rugby Club on the 15thSeptember at the Poppy Pageant Parade. A special moment for him as he will be accompanied by his granddaughter who is a military Cadet.
Pete launces his POPPY PARISH WALK at the Tenbury Road Coop, Bromyard, on 10thAugust please pop and meet him and his family. Please sponsor either by a donation or by the mile.
