A Big thank you to all the people who turned up on a glorious saturday afternoon to the grand opening and naming of the new “ Stuart Cawkwell Hall “. It was a very proud day for Angela, Emma and Matt Cawkwell and Family who again thank you for making their day.
The new hall on Kentford and Kennet football ground is to be named in Memory of one of our long term player members Stuart Cawkwell who sadly passed away. The hall is to be officially opened by his wife Angela Cawkwell.
Stuart was a player member of the football club for many years and was heavily involved even after giving up playing football . He was a member of our Band for many years, he was our Chairman and he played the Euphonium brilliantly .
We have been asked to play and will be proud to do so from 3.30-4.00 and 4.30-5.00
