Just to keep you up-to-date, Hazel Greaves & Paul Holmes MP will be unveiling a bench dedicated to Fred Greaves VC. If anyone wishes to attend, we are meeting at the war memorial (opposite Town Hall) at 10:30 with the cutting of the ribbon at 11:45 on Friday, October 30th.
In other news, Fred was discussed on Wednesday’s ‘Toby Foster Show’ on BBC Radio Sheffield. They chatted about Greaves VC ale as well as Fred’s life and how he won his Victoria Cross. You can listen again via the BBC Radio Sheffield website.
Greaves VC bitter is starring at the 2nd Chesterfield CAMRA event which is being held at the Market Hall. Let’s hope it wins an award. I will keep you posted on my efforts on road naming & Fred being honored with a posthumous Freedom of the Borough.
