Old Photographs Appeal:  The local history group have resumed meeting again after the summer break and are now undertaking to gather old photographs of the people and places of the parish.  These photographs will be copied and returned immediately to the owners on a day to be fixed in the next few weeks.  This is a great opportunity to pass on local knowledge and old images to the younger generation and the wider community.  New members are always welcome at the meetings on Tuesday nights at 8.30 in Morty’s bar.
