It's a No-Brainer for children and adults to enjoy the long summer holiday and, you never know, Queen Victoria might visit Box in person this year.
I think Frankie Vaughan came to Box in maybe the 50's to open the new Boys Club in the Market Place, Tom Selwyn Smith clearly had a connection with this singer. One of the projects for the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977 was to renovate the new Jubilee Youth Centre. Many of us gathered there in the evenings with brushes and paints (Elizabeth Devon, Roger Eaton, John Wilson and others) We all had young children whom we left in our partners' care. We had so much fun and achieved a lot and nearly 40 years on we are still all good mates.
The latest edition is splendid; we both found it extremely interesting and informative. Many
thanks for all the hard work that goes into its production.

Did you know the Beatles came right through the centre of Box in 1963. Village bobby, PC John Bosley, was there to keep back the crowd at Box Railway Station. You can read John's amazing story at: www.boxpeopleandplaces.co.uk
By coincidence you can also see the film A Hard Day's Night which recreated the group's travels on BBC4 Sunday night at 7.35pm. We should love to hear from anyone who remembers the Beatles visit to Box.
