A former army nurse has issued a rally call for sweet-toothed citizens to support a ‘Patriotic Pudding Night’ with a dash of D-Day commemorations.

Broadheath with Rushwick WI is organising the unique event at Lower Broadheath Village Hall on Saturday, April 27, after calls for a repeat of previous sell-out pudding nights.

But this time there is a patriotic twist and a dash of D-Day landing commemorations.

The evening will begin with a patriotic parade led by David Waldron, Worcestershire chairman of the Royal British Legion, escorted by local cadets representing the Army, Navy and RAF. 

 “We want this to be a jubilant evening of comradeship within the community and a timely tribute to the heroes of the D-Day landings, on the 75th anniversary year,” said organiser Kay Hurn, who served in the Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps.

“The Women’s Institute is known for its wartime efforts on the Home Front too, so we are honouring our most senior members who can remember those days.

“Guests will be able to enjoy a uniquely entertaining evening as well as some of the WI’s most delicious desserts.”

Members of Broadheath with Rushwick WI will serve guests with a ploughman’s supper followed with an extensive array of delicious desserts, including some great British favourites.

There will be musical entertainment with local singer ‘Sarah B’ and a raffle will raise funds for Worcestershire Association of Carers on the night.

Individuals and groups can book tickets at only £10 each, by calling 01905 429031 or emailing broadheathwithrushwickwi@gmail.com
