A year with Tulip Radio in Spalding

It has been a busy time this year, with so many events to organise and attend for the Armed Forces. How proud we British are of the men and women for what they have done and continue to do for our country.

It’s been a very big year for the military with the anniversary of the outbreak of World War One as well as the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy. We have been privileged to have been invited to many commemorative events and have tried to attend as many as possible. The sheer humility shown by many ex-servicemen at these events should be a life lesson to those for whom ‘being famous’ seems to be a life ambition.

2014 also saw the first People’s Parade in Spalding, which promises much for the future as do events like Tulip Mania at Springfields, which is to be bigger and better for 2015.

This year, after much negotiation and machination, a new town centre manager, Dennis Hannant, was appointed. He has many plans for Spalding and 2015 looks like being an extremely busy one for this very committed and gifted man. We wish him all the best.

May we thank all our listeners: without you and our many volunteers, there would be no Tulip Radio. Happy Christmas and a very prosperous New Year to you all.
