BANG, CRASH WALLOP – WHAT A CELEBRATION – ROBBIE BURNS WOULD HAVE LOVED IT
Congresbury Scouts and Guides HQ is not the most likely venue to celebrate the memory of Robbie Burns. But, for the 90 people who attended this annual event on Saturday 28th January, it was ‘Fantastic’.
Do you have a military service background?
Did you complete National Service?
Did your husband or wife serve in the Armed Forces?
The Village Agents would like to hear from you as part of a mapping project that will inform the provision of support to those who are members of the Armed Forces family.
The Rural Hidden Heroes project has been celebrating the service of servicemen and women and their spouses, widows, widowers and dependents. Many local people have stepped forward to share their stories and we would like to bring those together for an exhibition and community event.

The Congresbury afternoon WI meet in the Methodist Hall on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 2.15 and are a small, very friendly group, always happy to welcome visitors and new members.
