Hoxne & District Cycling Club

The HDCC are a road cycling club based in Hoxne, Suffolk. They ride, for pleasure and to keep fit, most weekends from March to October. Other times it is more sporadic depending on the weather. The club was formed in 2004, after a charity ride (organised to raise funds for the local playgroup) from London to Hoxne. For further details visit their website.

The Red Feather Club offers a unique experience in a 1940s WW2 NCOs’ social club, visitors say it is like “going back in time”. The museum – run by the 95th Bomb Group Heritage Association – is the official UK museum of the 95th Bomb Group. It houses only 95th Bomb Group items such as uniforms, photographs and memorabilia. Open days are held on the last Sunday of every month during the summer (May to October inclusive 10am-4pm). An Open Day is held in mid May when US Veterans and their families attend usually with a WW2 fly past, stall holders and WW2 military vehicles. It is also home to the 1285th Military Police Company re-enactors who have rebuilt a guard room alongside the renovated Red Feather Club and Blue Lounge.  During the year there are 1940s dances, film shows, talks and the museum is open for educational visits from schools and groups such as the WI.
