Geoff has a great memory and has now only to nail one name of those present. Can you help?

Many thanks to Malcolm Smith for suggesting one of the missing names and to Richard Appleton for confirming that he was once (in his own words, ahem) young, slim and good looking. I don’t think Specsavers were in business then.

88’s 60th Charter Thingummy – the Programme – 1995

Many thanks to Tom Cathcart for hanging on to this souvenir and sharing it. If I am any judge, the humour smacks of a certain Ian Rhodes. Rhodesy spared no-one in his descriptions, which still make me laugh even now, 25 years later.

Here’s the front cover. The full document is available below as a PDF to download and enjoy.

88’s visit to Aalten 2003

With many thanks to Mark Laws for the photograph and the recollection (photo not for the faint of heart).

Mark writes: clearing out my study I found this picture of me (88 Chairman 2002-2003) and fellow GP Charles Saffman in Aalten doing our version of the Cheeky Girls as part of the Cabaret that night. There was a version of Electric Six involving Dale Casson and Ian Rhodes with Tattoo and Steve Slade with Graham Foulds, I think.

Further appeal from Gordon Hayes: Westway Food Bank

Good morning all

Please find below my weekly FB post regarding the situation at WOA foodbank. We remain really desperately short of many items and the very high distribution rate continues unabated. As always, any publicity would be greatly appreciated.

With very many thanks on behalf of WOA.

Best wishes
Gordon

Week commencing 15/7/20

An enormous thank you once again for all the hugely generous donations to Westway Open Arms food bank in Eastfield – people’s generosity is both amazing and humbling – it really all does make a huge difference. Over 80 emergency mainly family food bags are still being distributed weekly – thank you so much once again for making this possible.

We continue to run extremely short of the items listed below – many shelves have almost completely run out.

Please note we are unable to store and handle fresh fruit and vegetables. Currently we have a plentiful stock of pasta and tea bags. Food donations can generally be presented to the main entrance between 10am and 12 noon on Monday and Tuesday, or between 4pm and 6pm on Wednesday and Thursday. Alternatively I’m happy to have things left with me and I’ll take them across. There is a yellow box and wooden stall by my front door to drop things in – I can sort it from there.

With very many thanks again – and please continue to share ?
