We’d just like to take this opportunity to congratulate, and pass on our best wishes, to Tom Carr who is celebrating his 90th birthday.
A dedicated member of the Howlands, Tom recently turned 90! We knew we’d get his age out of him eventually!
For many years Tom has battled all weather conditions on his electric scooter to be at the Howlands to socialise and make his speciality – wooden toys.
Unbelievably Tom just happened to mention he has just received the “Croix De Guerre” from the French Government. The medal was awarded to him for his role in the D-Day landings in 1944.
An amazing achievement, we are all very proud of him, a true hero.
