Association Centenary Dinner Dance.
The evening commenced with the Corps of Drums Beating Retreat at 18.00 hrs what a great display they put on.
A credit to the Regiment and themselves, both on and off parade .Fortunatly the sun shines on the rightous so the
reception drinks were served on the terrace, giving people the chance to mingle and have photo's taken with the members of the Drums.
The Country House laid on an excellent meal, Melon, Cream of Veg Soup, Roast beef with all the trimmings,
Apple Strudle and Custard,
Cheese and Biscuits, Tea or Coffee with mints and half bottle of wine per head.
Colonel Richard Winstanley brought us up to date with the Regiments activities and very good he was too.
Ivor, Bob and Tony proposed the toasts.
The envelope draw raised £338.00 and the raffle nearly £600.00. Jim our resident DJ laid on music to suit everybody,
again the Drums came to the fore really enjoying themseves on the dance floor and entertaining the whole of the room.
The young ladies were certainly inpressed, as were are guests who included as already mentioned.
Col Richard Winstanley, The Lord Mayor of Manchester, The Lady Mayoress and Major Andy Green Gen Sec and Treasurer of the ASSN.
A comment from the Lord Mayor" its the first time I have been drawn into folding raffle tickets but what a great night".
All in all a very sucessful and enjoyable evening thanks to all who attended.
Regimental Remberance Day 19th May 2013
Although numbers were low, with only 16 traveling we enjoyed an excellent week-end.
The hotel rooms and food were good,
the weather mild and fine. Four of us were fortunate enough to have a chat with the Colonel.
The band and Corps of Drums were on top form, its surprising how the years roll away once they strike up
bent backs straighten and shoulder go back. All in all a very enjoyable week-end.
With the wine flowing freely, along with a pint or tree.
The journey home was mared by heavy traffic getting out of London,
it took us two hours to hit the motorway, poor Mike Tarkenter was driving.
Well done to all who attended.
Grenadier Day Buckingham Palace 26th June 2013.
Some 140 members, Hon members and their ladies from Manchester Branch attended this wonderful event.
Her majesty had a busy afternoon with the inspection of Queens Company, presenting New Colours to Nijmagen,
and a walk about at the Garden party.
The occasion was only mared by the absence of the Colonel, we wish him a speedy recovery.
Even the coach drivers were Ex Grenadiers, Mike Tarkenter and Frank Ashton. Thanks lads for a job well done.
