Visitors to Stradbroke are often astonished at how many splendid facilities we have and also how well situated they are, so close to the Village Centre. They wonder how has it been possible for a village of this size to have such a splendid Community Centre, a Swimming Pool and Gym, a Medical Centre, a well-drained Playing Field and so many different Sports Clubs, open to all?

This illustrated presentation by Gerald Jenkins is an appreciation of all the hard work put in by so many volunteers and enthusiasts over the years. Without them and their drive and generosity, most of the improvements and additions could never have been achieved. Not , of course, that there have been no problems and difficulties to overcome on the way. One of them even needed a formal official referendum to resolve!

This presentation was first given in 2012 and perhaps it is now time to repeat it and to bring it up to date. For those who have recently moved into the village it will be a chance to get to know how Stradbroke has changed over the years and of course for those who have lived here for a long time, there is the pleasure of remembering and recalling the successes and problems of the past 50 years and more.

Entry is £3 at the door and the bar will be open. All proceeds will be donated to FOASS in order to help with repairs to the fabric of the Church
