Hi there, I was recently contacted by a friend who used to live at the camp in Ashby Folville in the 1950's with a view to organising a reunion in the summer of 2009. He is in touch with several people and also the Carrington family who used to live in the Hall.
If you used to live at this camp or know someone that did please send me a contact email. Tadeusz
Ashby Folville Reunion, The date for the reunion has now been firmed up for saturday 24th October 2009. Proposed outline programme: 12:00 Unveiling of plaque commemorating Polish presence from 1947 to 1964. 13:00 Lunch / exchange of experiences / viewing photographs / contributing to a permanent record etc. (At the village hall and/or Carrington Arms) 14:00 Visiting the site and generally reminiscing and having a relaxing day I know Czesiek has been contacted by ex-residents from as far away as Canada ! Email contact with Czesiek at firstname.lastname@example.org or with me Tadeusz at email@example.com
With regards to my previous emails I have unfortunately inform you that the proposed reunion that was planned for 24th October 2009 has had to be postponed to Spring 2010. The reason for this change of plan is rather prosaic; namely the Leics County Roads Authority have taken upon themselves a major programme of rebuilding and the road through Ashby Folville is currently closed, apart from local access. I will forward information regarding new proposals for this reunion in the new year. Meanwhile, I hope that you will be able to continue sending us additional historical information regarding the history of the camp to the addresses in my previous emails. Best Regards, Tadesz
