Doxey Reunion - 25th October 2009



The Event was a great success with well over 120 people there - some coming from as far as London and Essex.

It was well reported, with photos, in the Newsletter and Express and Star (which also praised this website, while lamenting the closing of our two pubs.)

Express and Star - 28th October 2009


"" Many people will remember that Ray Spurway organised a very successful reunion on the Church Hall in October 2007 when former residents of Doxey came back and shared memories with friends.

On Sunday 25th October the event will be repeated and it is hoped that even more people will come with even more photographs and reminiscences.

Eileen being interviewedOn Thursday (22nd) Chris King of Radio Stoke interviewed Ray Spurway and Eileen Skelton about the event. It was broadcast on Friday 23 just before 11.00am on Paula White's Mid-Morning show. Eileen being interviewed

Eileen Skelton's Doxey Scrapbooks will be making another welcome appearance.

So put the date in your diary, dig out all the photos and memories and tell all your old friends to come along on the Sunday afternoon of 25th Oct. to Doxey Church Hall.

And if you are new to the area come along and see what Doxey was like 20,  40,  60  years ago.

We hope to provide scanning facilities to enable photographs etc. to be copied and saved.  If the owner is agreeable we can then display these documents on the Doxey website (as was done with Chris Ball's photographs of the 'old' estate) and If we can get enough images we will try to make a CD available - at a nominal cost.

If you can make these documents available before the reunion it would enable copies to be displayed and save time - contact Iain Simpson (webmaster tel (01785) 607 771) ""
