A nostalgic afternoon for our Armed Forces

On Tuesday 26th June 2018, Enter CIC held a free event for the community supported by the 4 Together Partnership and Armed Forces Day to celebrate and commemorate the work of our Armed Forces.

Over 70 members of the community including veterans and ENSA members were lucky enough to secure a free ticket for this event and arrived with flags waving to support our armed forces. The audience were captivated by a Vera Lynn tribute act, who truly captured the essence of the iconic lady herself and brought back many nostalgic memories. The Street Party event was held at The Enter Centre, an establishment which is now known for its well-attended high-quality events.

A spokesperson from Enter CIC said “It was an honour to hold a free event for the community in support of the Armed Forces. Today we commemorated brave soldiers from the past, but also those soldiers who are currently serving all over the world. A big thank you to you all.”

Feedback from the event came flooding in.

“May I say a big thank you for a lovely afternoon. Wasn’t sure what to expect. WOW … far exceeded my expectations!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. What a fantastic time we have had. A lovely afternoon.”

“I was in ENSA during the war and the songs have helped me recall all the happy times we had in the midst of worry and sadness. Thank you so much for helping me have such special memories.”

“A great idea – A fantastic afternoon for the community once again!!! It is good to have a sing-a-long and it has been wonderful for my mum (who is 93) to recall the war songs. Thanks so much.”
“Well you do it every time. WOW, absolutely fantastic. Our residents from Tenlands Care Home – Hc-One really enjoyed the music, good, decoration. You didn’t forget one thing and to say it was free! Honestly well done from all at Tenlands. We thank you all very much”

“What a fab day. Enter you have done Ferryhill proud again. Many happy memories brought back tears and laughter.”

“Emotional, as could be expected. Incredible afternoon. Thank you very much to all involved with regard to hard work and your ingenuity. Top class!”
