SAD News: I start this week with two people who passed away on the same day last week.
Firstly, Betty Talbot, whose late husband Jack, was the local vicar at St Mary’s for a number of years.
Secondly, John Alexander, a local farmer from Church Brooke Farm.
John did a lot for the local “Watch” young environmental group, whose leader was Rosemary Bond.
I remember with great affection when our youngsters went out at night at least once a year.
They would go back to the farmyard and enjoy sausages, baked beans (cooked by yours truly) and jacket potatoes in one of the old barns, after they had been out for an evening’s trek looking at local flora and fauna. Our thoughts go to his wife Eileen and children.
GUIDED walk: Next Thursday, September 5, from the community centre, starting at 9.30am. Please wear suitable clothing.
BLOOD Donor sessions: At the community centre on Friday, September 6, and AWE Rec Soc, September 9 to 11. Anyone can attend. Call 0300 123 2323.
