DATES FOR YOUR DIARY 2020
Middle East Day
Gallipoli Dinner 2020
As many will recall the LF Web Site in years past under the
leadership of the late Capt (retd) Joe Eastwood BEM organised
what were thoroughly enjoyable and well attended LF Dinner
Club. Perhaps many will recall the excellent dinner at the
Woodthorpe Hotel in Prestwich some years ago? We have recently
been asked if it would be possible for the LF Web Site to
once again organise a celebratory Gallipoli Dinner and as
in the past hold it in a more favourable and intimate location,
one other than the Drill Hall in Bury as used by the Regiment
for their disappointing Gallipoli Dinner. We have decided
therefore that we WILL accede to these requests and that the
LF Web Site will once again hold a Celebratory Gallipoli Dinner.
It will be on the evening of Saturday 25th April, 2020 being
the day before the Gallipoli Parade in Bury. The venue has
yet to be decided and will be dependent on the number of likely
attendees. It will however certainly be in Bury Town Centre
and within easy reach of the hotels used by those attending
the Gallipoli Weekend Celebrations.
It is hoped that we can once again create a convivial, friendly
and intimate gathering of LF Veterans and others and pay tribute
in our dinner celebrations to our Gallipoli Veterans of years
Please let us know if you wish to attend particularly with
partners. Dress would be optional but Blazers and Medals would
be welcome. Timings and venue to be announced in due course.
Saturday 25th April
Having listened to all your
comments about Gallipoli we have taken your advice
on what you want. We have therefore booked the Two
Tubs in Bury Town Centre for our Gallipoli Celebrations
get together for a convivial drink and a potato pie
supper. It is booked for 25th April
1930hrs onwards with food
about 2100hrs. The food will be free, paid for by
the LF Web Site but you must book so we know the numbers
for catering. At the moment there are 20 of us going
and wifes and families are more than welcome
to come if they so wish. We have sole use of a private
room that can hold 40 + and for those so inclined
the usual Saturday night disco will be on in the '
back room '.
