Sandra's stuck for a date!

Published in the Echo 20th August 1985.

Canvey’s charity queen Sandra Langlois lifted a shapely leg  over a vintage motor bike to help her guess when it was first registered. And like quite a few others she got the date wrong. The bike , along with three other vintage road warriors, was at a fete at the Appleton Arms pub in Benfleet High Road. Main stalls were run by organisers Castle Point Lions and other charities, who kept their profits. Canvey Supremes majorettes could not appear due to the illness of one of their managers. The tug of war match was almost cancelled when teams failed to show. But by the end of the afternoon two of the four pubs who promised to turnout arrived. Appleton Arms won the pull off against Castle. Lions press officer Jim Holt said:” It was a great day and we expect we have raised £200″.  (The bike was registered in 1927).
