Another entry in the newspaper, November 20 1925, stated ‘A highly successful and well patronised social, organised by the Fulbourn branch of the British Legion, assisted by members of the Women’s Institute, was held in the village hall, on Armistice Night. Mrs Peake arranged a competition and Mrs Hodgeman sold poppies. The hall was decorated with patriotic flags and emblems under the direction of Captain C.E. Townley.’
(The forementioned historical information is taken from a compilation of the branch’s history which Don Crane (deceased), put together in 1981 and for which we are exceedingly grateful.)
Like us, the Fulbourn Women’s Institute is also 90 years old this year so we are once again (as above), combining forces to have “Cream Teas and Strawberries”, on The Manor Lawns, forming part of The National Poppy Party weekend. The Peterborough Highland Pipe Band will also be in attendance, so be sure to put this date in your diary.
Dont forget the production of ‘Eyes Front’ with Isla St Clair Sat 12th March in The Townley Hall – tickets £10 from Twelve AND GOING FAST!
