BACK IN 2004 ALONG WITH A COLLEAGUE – FREDA DAVIES, ALAN CROWE ORGANISED THE WELSHPOOL WINTER FESTIVAL WITH A 1940S THEME ON BEHALF OF THE THEN WELSHPOOL PARTNERSHIP.

This proved highly successful and a smaller event was held in 2005 to mark the 60th Anniversary of VE VJ Day.

 In 2015 as part of the 70th Anniversary of VE VJ Day Alan organised another 1940s day as part of a programme of events to mark the occasion. It was put to him that the 40s day was better than a number of first events of many similar ones that have been going for a number of years. Taking this on board, without any funding or major support he organised a significantly bigger and better 1940s weekend in 2016 which looks set to grow bigger, better & stronger year by year.

Having taken it as far as he could single handed, Alan recruited the different helpers and supporters of the event to form a committee to help with the general organising of the event and the fund raising activities that are staged to make the main weekend happen.
