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 past.
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 2020

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 wife’s 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 '.
Numbers soonest please.
