Memory by John L Raybould   Apr 15, 2018
In Oct 2017 my Rotary Club of Beccles in Suffolk, England, hosted a ‘3 Club’ competition between ourselves and 2 local clubs, Bungay and Halesworth.
The games included ‘Connect 4’, ‘Snakes & Ladders’ and ‘Darts’. I purchased 5 unused ha'pennies and took them with Grandfather Georges 'Shove ha'penny' board to the ‘Bear & Bells’ pub in Beccles along with a hard-copy of the rules. I forget whether or not I won my game! It was probably the 1st time the board had been used since 1962.

Unbeatable at 'Shove ha'penny'!
I have his board but need to buy some special ha'pennies, which are flat and smoothed on one side, from a Company of which I have, somewhere, a note.
I am his eldest grandson with many other fond memories.

I remember Grandad's smile and his kind and gentle manner - a true gentleman.

It's a shame I never got to meet my grandad.
