One of our favourite events took place in June – the local Armed Forces and Emergency Services Parade. We were happy to assist again stewarding in what tends to be our easiest day of the year (most people in the town are sensible and understand to stand back when a march is approaching, or know not to double park their car on the High Street when an artillery gun is heading their way – most, not all) and as always it was an absolute pleasure to watch the parade.
The main issues we encountered this year were outwith the parade – we forgot to collect the dias from outside the court (sorry about that and thanks to Jiving Jim for the use of his van!) and we then had to help a stranded Tables family get their car jump started. All part of the day…!
