Friday, February 11, 2022
Friday 11th, Saturday 12th and/or Sunday 13th February 2022, at the Novotel York Hotel and Centre, Fishergate, York.
COFEPOW trustees have decided that the 80th anniversary of the fall of Singapore, which occurs on 15th February next year, should be commemorated by a specially arranged weekend for members and families.
New National Event Co-ordinator, Anthony Morris, has been working hard to identify suitable venues and York has been selected as the perfect location. Discussions are ongoing, both with York Minster to hold a short service and lay a wreath and with various places such as the Jorvik Museum to obtain special Group discounts.
The Novotel York Hotel and Centre has been identified as the ideal base. The hotel overlooks the River Fosse and is situated close to the historic city walls, and is well-positioned for exploring the culture of York. There is excellent accessibility for those with reduced mobility, and Wi Fi/internet access is available.
