Sad Times For Amesbury Division When 50 Years of History Came to an End
TV personality Carl Tyler with some members of the Amesbury Division
50 years of Amesbury Divison’s history came to an end with the demolition of our Headquarters building.
The existing pre-frabricated HQ building was erected temporarily in the early 1950s with a life expectancy of only 15 years!!!!! This has forced the Division to find alternative rented accommodation until it can be replaced.
Amesbury Division now have a mountain to climb in terms of fund raising for the building but not an impossible task with some £20,000 already raised. Our recent ‘plight’ in the local newspaper is having the desired effect with local residents and clubs rallying round to donate funds and pledge further donations in support of our cause.
Amesbury Division have also found ourselves in the unenviable position of also having to replace vital equipment with the aid of fund raising letters, with one generous local resident purchasing our first defibrillator.
So this is a plea for help to all Divisions willing to help Amesbury Division climb our mountain, linking up for fund raising events, sharing fund raising ideas based on your own successes.St John Award Ceremony
