On 16th May 2023, we hosted a celebration evening for the Dambusters 80th Anniversary. The evening was a huge success and enjoyed by all our guests who attended.
Emily Martin Music played the clarinet and saxophone whilst our guests enjoyed a reception drink of prosecco or sparkling elderflower followed by a 40’s inspired afternoon tea freshly prepared by our talented kitchen staff. They even managed to add jam tarts and potted beef to the menu remembering the 40’s.
One of our guests Eric Jarvis showed memorabilia on the evening and shared his vast knowledge with the guests.
Our very talented photographer Jonathan Mank; PM Photography was on hand to shoot photos of the evening who kindly gave us all photos which we will share, hopefully raising money for RAF Benevolent Fund. Some of our guests dressed up for the occasion with one couple dressing in 40’s dress.
The highlight of the evening was a flypast of the Lancaster, we were very worried about the weather but it held off just in time for the wonderful noise and sight above.
Some of our guests stayed over to enjoy the comfort of our 5* accommodation and breakfast the following morning.
We have received many positive and kind comments from all those who attended for which we are very grateful.
