Esendon Supafete Esendon Supafete is a charity event run for organisations in the village as well as local and National charities. Everything we raise goes to these institutions, no admin or other costs are taken out so it is purely for their good. Essendon is located on the B158, off the A414 between Hatfield and Hertford so is very well connected. We get a Fire Engine in most years so access to the site is good. The Postcode is AL9 6HA. The event is in it's 61st year and last year, we managed to get parachutists to celebrate our 60th anniversary so this year, we wanted something impressive with a military theme. The Supafete takes place every year, rain or and we anticipate between 3 - 5000 visitors. It runs from 2.00 pm to 5.00 pm ending often with a Tug O War. All IMPS members would be welcome to join in and in particular we would love to have a tank present so if anyone can help please contact Colin Rees by email.

Vintage Summer Fair The Chilham Remembrance Group are a small association of local people, involved with researching and commemorating the men who did not return to the Parish from the two world wars. We lost 40 men in WW1 and are in the process of putting plaques on the wall of each man's last home. We are holding a Vintage Fair on the village green in Old Wives Lees to launch phase 2 of the project, which will focus on those lost in WW2. The IMPS association started in Chilham, and they would like to invite some IMPS members to attend the event. We will be having a fancy dress competition, and I'm hoping it will evoke the same feelings of joy and family fun of past village fairs. If you wish to participate, please contact Lyn Crowhurst by email

IMPS NORMANDY TOUR 2019 75th Anniversary of Operation Overlord. Planning is well underway for the IMPS 2019 tour of Normandy. Our campsite is already booked and several guided tours around the region have already been organised with experienced experts. We are linking up with local groups and the MVT to participate in the commemorations, including parades in Port en Bessin and Bayeux. We will be travelling to/from France via Portsmouth/Caen. The outward crossings will be either the overnight ferry leaving Sunday 2nd June or the daytime crossing on Monday 3rd June. The return crossings will be on Monday 10th June 2019. The duration of the trip will be 7 nights. We will be “occupying” a campsite which is located mid-way along the landing beaches. This makes it easy to visit all the sites relevant to Operation Overlord and the breakout. It provides a very high standard of facilities, with both camping and on site cabins available, it has an on-site swimming pool, excellent showers, a bar/cafe area and great access for the larger vehicles. We now need YOU to make a commitment to the tour by filling in the form. As in previous years we will ask for stage payments between now and the tour, this should help to spread your outgoings in proportion to the clubs outgoings, so it helps everybody! Please give as much information as you can at this stage, but we understand that there may be some changes necessary over the intervening time, you will be asked for more detailed information nearer the time. Please include your email address so we can save on postage and get the very latest information to you as it happens. If you change your email address please make sure you update us. We will not intentionally divulge this information to any third party. But we may send you links to museums etc. The tour is being arranged by IMPS so the entrant needs to be a current IMPS member, and still be a member at the time of the tour. Space is limited so entries will be strictly on a first come first served basis. If all the spaces are filled, you will be placed, in order, on a reserve list. Form available in the February newsletter or you can obtain one by emailing James Gosling. Email James Gosling for an entry form or see February's newsletter
