WWEPA dinner off until the spring

Association to aim for new May date.

12 October 2021

After much heart-searching and discussion, WWEPA have decided to postpone their annual dinner which was scheduled for November 26.

A new date will be set for early May when it’s hoped a full house of members from every era – which has been the norm in previous years – will be able to attend.

The Covid pandemic forced the cancellation of last year’s event. The continuing threat meant a lot of our older members were still dubious about being confined inside a packed Adams Park for what is normally a five-hour bonanza. Others had wanted the most popular event in the Ex-Players’ calendar to restart and were looking forward to reliving Wycombe’s first Wembley triumph 30 years on.

Reluctantly, WWEPA were not prepared to expose members to any dangers however small – especially with key members of the organising team still shielding and unable to perform normal duties in the build-up and on the night itself.

We’ve had some fun over the years and the return of the 1991 heroes, including manager Martin O’Neill, would have been a fantastic draw. But the six-month delay might increase anticipation even further. Who knows, we might - on current League 1 form - be able to combine that look-back with a promotion party!

What it has highlighted is the need for our organisation to recruit more younger members. Already on the hunt for a new Treasurer and Membership Assistant while Glyn Creaser recovers from his death-defying cardiac arrest, the search for new, fresh faces is becoming more urgent.

Step up boys. We need you.
