26th June 2010 5pm - 01.30 am


A beautiful sunny, Armed Forces Day, saw a very pleasant and bright evening with the sun setting around 8.30 to 9.00pm. The venue provided a spacious exterior with a balcony view pointing across a green sporting complex. Attendees came in drips and drabs, but came they did with wide grins, loud laughter, hand shakes and bear-hugs. It certainly was a sight to behold, one that would brighten any setting.

So the evening inevitably begun with comrades greeting one another, trying to bridge the gap of many years of not seeing, speaking or making any contact whatsoever with colleagues or friends. This definitely reinforced the need for such an occasion as this to be continued in the future, at a regularity to be determined by YOU the people.


Greetings and welcome was extended to all and tributes paid to comrades who have passed on.

Saltfish Canapes went down very well. Some people turned up late and didn't get any. Damn shame what!

After the main meal, which was blessed by Pastor Brian Scott, we paraded for a photo call of all Ex-Service personnel. This was easier said than done if you ask the photographer Dr Vanley Burke. (See photos at Gallery )


There were 4 categories of prizes as follows:

1st to arrive - Trevor Brathwaite - bottle of wine

1st to pay in full for EPR event - Sharon & Erick Senior - botle of champaign

Youngest attendee - Shyra (18 months) - box of celebration sweets.


Oldest Ex-Service Person in attendance - Ivan Kennedy (74) - presented with, but not given, the EPR mascot walking stick christened Sir Windrush.


All prizes were sponsored by the Company Bardon Travel Ltd Chauffeur Service, www.birminghamchauffeurservice.co.uk

EPR Website Presentation

A website has been built for the EPR to act as a vehicle and a focal point for all to access and catch upon the past, present and future. The website www.epreunion.com was built, and presented on the night, by Gavin Campbell


The following charities were chosen:

1. Help for Heroes

2. OSCAR Sandwell Sickle Cell & Thallassaemia

A very big thank you to all those who donated on the night , and special thanks to Ronnie Vaughan who, although he did not attend the event, kindly gave £50 towards the charities. Each Charity  received £100, as can be seen under News-Charities.

Dancing the Night Away........

With the help of the DJ we took a trip down memory lane, dancing to tunes from 25, 30 or even 40 years on.....the dance floor rocked with people shaking a leg or even two.......!!!!

Many thanks to Sherry, Ken, Griff and Happy for their help in organising this event, and thanks to Barbara & Lisa for the many hours they spent at the door booking everyone in.  Many thanks also for the support of families, partners and friends, your presence was well received.  Apology to anyone whose name is missing from the attendance list and for names spelt incorrectly.

A BIG thank you to all who emailed me photos, which can be found on the EPR website Gallery.

The proposed next EPR event is Armed Forces Day Saturday 25th June 2011.  Please be kind enough to respond to me with your thoughts of having this event as proposed next year or in two years time. Your reply can be by email, phone, text, Jungle Drums etc.

Yes, one love and blessing to you all.

Some talk about it, Some do it, Some talk about it and do it.
