AFD Sunday, Morecambe, 25th June

The weather stayed dry although cool and windy and there were plenty of people on the Prom – helped by the additional events of the Half Marathon and the Kite Festival. Following the Parade down the Prom there was a Drumhead Service conducted by Fr Tom Davis, at the end of which the Mayor of Lancaster, Cllr Roger Mace, said a few words about the importance of celebrating Armed Forces Day. Representatives from various organisations had displays both on the Arena area and in the Winter Gardens, including ourselves. Our stand had Wings Appeal merchandise and a tombola which was successful. Thank you to Cadets Emslie, Pharoah, Wells, Byrne, Nevin and Rogers, CI Wells and CWC Chairman, Mrs Nuttall, from 455 (Morecambe & Heysham) Squadron Air Cadets for their tremendous support. We made £196.18 on the stand, talked to lots of people and had a good time … and the Chairman won a huge hamper of cheese in the raffle, which will do his cholesterol level a lot of good!!
