Marquee and Zoom Flags

Before we show you our new Marquee and Zoom Flags, here is a little bit of the background story behind the purchase. Last year, one of our members, Mr J Deacon, celebrated his 90th birthday with a surprise party. His friends and family donated money to our branch on the night. The Branch were delighted to be invited to the party. Below you will see some pictures of the evening. Mr Deacon is pictured with members of the Branch and the Branch Standard.

It was decided at a recent Branch meeting, that we would use the money raised from Mr Deacon's birthday, to purchase a Marquee and Zoom Flags for the Branch to use at the various events we attend throughout the year. The Branch are delighted that the Marquee and Zoom Flags have arrived. Below are some pictures taken when we did a dummy run putting up the Marquee. More detailed photographs will be taken when the Marquee is used for our various events this year.

The Marquee and Zoom Flags have been supplied by Instant Awnings -
