So Gareth Southgate’s brave and talented team know which is their final match in this absorbing 2018 World Cup Finals and unfortunately it won’t be Sunday’s game. They have however given us all some genuinely joyful moments which we have all been able to share together and for many of us in the Tonbridge area that togetherness has been provided by the Angels Fan Park.
There have been many positive comments over the last three weeks but this from the Gill family perhaps sums up how people felt about the excitement created in our Marquee.
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you to all concerned with organising the Fan Zone during the World Cup. It truly was so lovely to be able to watch it at our local family friendly football club. In enabled me to watch it with my children and at the same time soak up the wonderful atmosphere that you get from being with football fans, friends and family. Thank you to the security men for making it feel a safe venue for the children and finally....the food was amazing too. A huge Well Done to all concerned and again a massive thank you from the Gill Family xx”
The Angels Board would also like to express it’s sincere thanks to Gareth and Tamara Johns who did much of the organising together with many volunteers who set up for each Fan Park and then tidied up afterwards - no mean task. Here’s to 2020 (The Euros) and the next Fan Park and we’ll party again.
