Hope & Anchor Potters Bar Reunion - Like stepping into a time warp!
 

This week's edition of 'Wyenot News' contains just one article, spread over several pages - the Potters Bar Reunion.

Thank you, thank you, thank you all for coming!!! I was nervous all week that nobody would turn up but I am still stunned by the huge turnout, which proved beyond any shadow of a doubt that the spirit of the seventies lives on. Thank you also, Ben and Will for providing food, Babycham, Maraschino cherries and allowing me to take over your fantastic restaurant for a night to re-enact the building's past!

To be absolutely honest - for once on this web site I am lost for words, so will use photographs only, and pass on just one of the nice comments of the evening.

 

Towards the end of the evening, a lady approached me and said, 'Thank you so much - if I die tonight, I will die happy.'

If you would like to, we could make this into an annual event for the last Saturday of every November.

With 'Going Steady' by Jilted John, the last record of the evening still ringing in my ears, over to the photographs. They are spread over thirteen pages for ease of download for those using dialup and they run more or less in chronological order. If I have any names captioned incorrectly, please let me know - it all happened 20 years and more ago and I didn't have time to take notes!

There was a 'Book of Remembrance' at the venue to sign but, as the building became crowded, it was hidden from view. A few signed on the night and some the next day but, if you are passing the Hope & Anchor and would like to sign, the book is still available in the Potters Bar - oops, I mean The Conservatory.
Before the party began - football table hired especially for the event - thanks Ben. Ref: DSC_6659
