Sunday August 4th:
I attended the Classic Car Show, starting early in the morning with the help of Cllr Jackson to set up the Town Gazebo to promote the Town and my own events. Later in the day I presented prizes for the various categories in show. It was a very successful day with great weather and I raised a lot for my charities.
Thursday August 15th:
Arthur Warburton's Funeral - I attended the funeral of Arthur Warburton, who had lived in John White Close for many years. Arthur was aged 101 and was a well loved character who had lived in the town for most of his life. Along with his family his funeral at Nene Valley Crematorium was well attended by friends and some civics from Helloo and Beverwijk which are towns in the Netherlands which his regiment liberated from the Germans during the 2nd World War. Mr Warburton is fondly remembered.
Saturday August 24th - my 2nd charity fundraiser:
The Afternoon Tea dance with music from Jeff Hatton was a great success. Among the guests were chains from Corby, Rushden, St Ives, Huntingdon and Kettering who enjoyed a wonderful afternoon tea and some dancing.
