The Hermitage Fete

Wonderful and lots of hard work put into this now annual event, Gail Thorey and her team make the event another venue not to miss…
Whilst there nice to meet and catch up with many residents at The Hermitage … ‘
Sun Hill’ (John) 87 – born, schooled (to 14) and lived and worked in Coates most of his life….sharp as a pencil!.

Violet Ellington (not a resident) came to Coates in 1946 and has lived in the same house on South Green for over 65 years – recently celebrated her 90th – the Pub next door to her was known as ‘The Rat Hole’ – I wonder why! (Stag & Hounds) and nice to see Mrs Hurst wife of ex Barclays Bank manager Clarence….
Fantastic history and nostalgia.

Nearly 100 raffle prizes!!!!
Well done again to Gail and her team…
