LADYGODIVAOFDOVERCOURTLady Godiva rode through the streets of Dovercourt at Easter 1960 to raise money for World Refugee Year. A huge crowd saw her set off from Hall Lane. Preceded by a Police escort, Lady Godiva (portrayed by Wendy Raven), and followed by Peeping Tom (one William Bleakley) attracted a great deal of attention as she rode to the Drill Hall (now Park Pavilion) to open a fete organised by Harwich Customs Social Club. While the fund raising fete was a success, its opening by Lady Godiva far eclipsed the fete itself.
