Our Town Mayor, Councillor Dave Muller, accompanied by his wife and consort, Lois, attended Stowmarket RNA’s Trafalgar Dinner held on the 21st October 2017 as their guests of honour.
RNA are pleased to report that the evening raised over £350 for the HMS Ganges Museum, Shotley, which holds memories and artefacts of when HMS Ganges was Suffolk’s training school for new entries joining the Royal Navy. Ganges shut its gates in 1976, leaving only HMS Raleigh in Torpoint, Cornwall as the Royal Navy’s New Entry Training Establishment for ratings.
Sitting alongside Councillor Muller is Stowmarket RNA’s chair, Olga Anderson and to her left, Clive Penton, Hon. Secretary of Stowmarket’s Royal Air Force Association, accompanied by his wife, Carol. Nearly 60 people attended the evening.
