Queensbury 1940’s Day Committee Receive a Donation


On Friday 25th March 2016, Stuart Walker and Joan Milner, both members of the Queensbury Community 1940’s Day committee were presented with a cheque for £250 by Lynda and Paul Cromie.

This is to be spent on providing free afternoon entertainment to the residents of Queensbury at this year’s 1940’s Day to be held on Saturday 18th June 2016.

Last year the event was a success, more entertainment is being provided this year, therefore costs have increased, leading to a need to raise more money. This donation will certainly ensure that the event can take place. Many thanks to Lynda and Paul on behalf of local residents who will be attending this year’s event.
