History of the PPA
Delving into the archives, we are pleased to be able to share some of the history of the PPA, with memories shared by some the PPAs members – being both local residents and long time established businesses.
Centenary Dinner – 2020
In 2020, the PPA celebrated it’s centenary; just before the full impact of covid-19 took hold and the nation was put into lockdown, the Centenary Dinner was held at the Portsmouth Guildhall with guest speaker Kevin Keegan. Read about this in the blog.
Centenary Booklet – the PPA 1920 to 2020
For the dinner, Rob Marchant compiled a special commemorative booklet, showcasing the history of the PPA, the history of the city of Portsmouth, memories and insights, as well as other articles from members who contributed. We’d be happy to share extracts as well the booklet itself – you can find it here as an e-book.
