Our American Visitor

 

1st July 2012 - The following day after a fabulous 1940’s themed night at The Greyhound, a lone American airman is spotted walking along Hill Road just outside Tibenham village. With curiosity the American is asked if he is somewhat late for the event? – whereupon it is discovered that he is Mr Scott Culver, the son of the late Henry J. Culver who was based at Tibenham airfield during WW11.

 

Henry Culver was one of the few lucky airmen who served his full term completing 30 sorties as a ball turret and waist gunner in the 445th Bomb Group, 703rd Squadron.

 

The 445th launched its first daylight bombing mission on 4th November 1943 - In total they flew 280 missions and 6,323 sorties. 576 airmen were killed in action and a total of 138 bomber aircraft were lost. The airfield is a memorial to all of the US airmen of the 445th Bomb Group who lost their lives during the Second World War.

 

Scott’s visit to Tibenham is to assist him with the writing of his book, ‘Daylight Raiders’ which is dedicated to the airmen of the 445th Bomb Group; his trip also coincides with the Tibenham Heritage Air Festival on the 8th July 2012.

1940’s Themed Night

 

On Saturday the 30th June ’12 The Greyhound played host to a 1940’s Day and Dance.

 

The event began at midday with a fantastic turnout of military vehicles; enthusiasts had travelled from across the county, Suffolk and Essex to exhibit their vehicles and to make a visit to the nearby Tibenham Airfield, home of the 445th Bomb Group during WW11 to lay a wreath to commemorate Veterans Day.

 

 

Back at The Greyhound a full afternoons entertainment had been laid on for visitors to enjoy, an authentic 1940’s tea room, a living history display, period model aircraft, a free swing dance lesson, a fashion show, Hair Raid Shelter 40’s hair stylists and all topped off with a good dose of 1940’s music!

 

The evening continued with a great many more visitors arriving, many of whom had come in either period or allied uniform dress code. DJ Texas Tommy had the dance floor full and the all-day bar was very well received. Jade Grand gave the evening a really authentic feel with her sensational singing performances and the outside catering provided by ‘Simply Delicious’ really was!

 

Due to the huge success of the event, this is going to be an annual event – many, many thanks to everyone who gave their time and effort to make it all happen.

 

 

Annual Village Festival

 

We host the Annual Village Festival every year - It is always a firm favourite on the community calendar held this year on the 9th June 2012. The dog show was a firm favourite with each class bursting at the seams with waggy tails! There were tractor trips around the village as well as a display of vintage tractors, there was also a scare-crow competition, a classic vehicle display, clay shoot, Punch and Judy show and a great variety of stalls. A fabulous BBQ was working flat out all day.

 

“A huge thank you to everybody who visited, helped and donated their time for this year’s ‘Tibenham Summer Festival’ held on the 9th June 2012 - The whole day was a resounding success with a grand total of £1334.85 being raised for our three nominated charities. (TFT - £760.00, Dogs Trust - £144.00 and Macmillan Cancer Support - £430. 85). The Clay pigeon shoot had fabulous support and was a fine tribute to the lasting memory of Garry - I hope you all enjoyed the day as much as we did” – Rob Smith Manager of The Greyhound.
