War Years Remembered !

Chelford Tenants & Residents Association recently held a "War Years Remembered" event at the Hall at Marthall, near Chelford. Over 60 people attended the event with some dressing for the occasion. A war themed menu which was prepared and served by volunteers was presented to attendees to include Ration Book Soup, Hotpot with Pickled Red Cabbage and Beetroot and War Years Trifle.

Fantastic war years themed music was provided by the 21 piece Wychcraft Big Band Cheshire which received great praise from those attending.

The event was possible due to funding from Cheshire East Council's War Commemoration Events Grants and Peaks and Plains Housing Trust who provided transport and venue hire.
The Association aims to combat social isolation in the community and this event for mainly older persons achieved this. Iris Ryder a local resident in her 80's commented, " the night was fantastic with a great atmosphere, the war food and band were brilliant and the room was alive with emotions"

Michael Jehan, Chair of the Association said " It was a really great community event that was well supported and many attending have asked for more. Due to the generosity of our funders and volunteers we were able to put this event on at a low cost for attendees"
