I write these notes feeling a bit sore after the inaugural EUFC Over 50s Walking Football Tournament that took place at Stonebridge Road on Wednesday evening before a crowd of at least 15! The Tournament was a great success and, given the print deadlines for this week’s programme, we thought we’d do it proper justice and make it a double feature in the Truro City programme next week.
Other Fleet Community activities since our last home game have included hosting the Mayor of Gravesham’s Annual Beating the Bounds Walk.
Dave Archer once again did what he does best, and made the Mayor, Councillor Greta Goatley, and her band of walkers very welcome with a bacon roll, tea and coffee before waving them off on their intrepid hike around the Borough… and then going back to his desk for a well-deserved sit down!
More than 60 walkers took part over two days covering the boundary of Gravesham and totalling 30 miles on foot, with the final six miles by boat on the River Thames.
Funds raised will go to the Mayor’s Charity Fund which this year is supporting Ellenor Hospice Children & Young Adults and Alzheimer’s & Dementia Support Services.
A reminder to Fleet fans that Gravesend’s annual firework display will be held on Friday, 4th November, at the Riverside Leisure Area. Gates open at 6pm and the fireworks will begin at 8pm.
Entry is free. Parking is in the public car parks in the town centre.
