Hailsham, United Kingdom, June 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- After closing the Branch some years ago as a direct result of lack of membership, a group of RAF servicemen and women decided to re-open the Branch in 1985 and now look forward to celebrating the 25th Anniversary of this re-launch at their forthcoming event.
As membership of RAFA Hailsham Branch is now in the region of 125, around 100 people, including the Mayor of Hailsham and other guests of honour, are expected to attend.
Commenting on the important work undertaken by the Association, the Mayor of Hailsham Councillor Robin Kempe said, “Much of what has been achieved by RAFA Hailsham Branch has been the result of a considerable degree of enthusiasm and commitment of its members in raising funds for the delivery of vital services that support our ex servicemen and women in the community.”
He added: “I am delighted to be attending this important celebratory occasion and I look forward to the continued development of RAFA Hailsham Branch in years to come.”
