Living in Soberton village, Hampshire, we are hoping to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of HMS SOBERTON’s commissioning (& rededicate the bell hanging in our church) on Sea Sunday, 8th July 2018, 1100hrs. The service will start at 1100 and there is plenty of parking on the Church Green. Soberton Church post code is SO32 3PF and their website can be viewed at www.sobertonchurch.org.uk
We are keen to ensure that as many as possible of those who served in her are alerted.
They and any other Ton Class association members who care to attend will be very welcome.
We are planning a short service in the church when the address will be from a former CO who became the First Sea Lord – Sir Jock Slater.
We will then adjourn to the local pub The White Lion ( http://www.thewhitelionsoberton.com/ ) which is about 25 yards from the church gate.
The landlord is a former NAAFI manager who knows the form! He is laying on a barbecue so it promises to be a good day (even if the weather is not all that good he has cover).
We would be jolly grateful for help in publicising the event through the Ton Class Association
All the best –
Yours aye – Tony
