With no major events to report before the copy dates of the local magazines it was a case of creating something to say if our publicity efforts were to be maintained within their December/January editions.
The Remembrance Sunday parade to the war memorial outside of Basingstoke’s civic offices had our President, David Wickens, laying a wreath on behalf of our club, and Paul Miller was there in a civic capacity as the deputy mayor.
After that it was a matter of talking about the upcoming visit to Brooklands Motor Museum and the Christmas lunch due on Wednesday 15 December.
Four magazines and the Basinga Extra web site carried this news and the Loddon Valley Link and the CommunityAd magazine for Overton, Oakley and Kempshott ran the story about Douglas Bader’s leg.
January will be a quiet month as only the Link (Oakley) and the Basinga publish in January.
