October 2013 Update

14 October:  Ian received from Derek Cullum, who used to live in the village, a copy of the daybook for a local farm dating from around the war years.  A fascinating record of an industry undergoing rapid change.

16 October:  Sad to hear of the death of long term resident Cecil Walker who has been a key source of information in collecting the oral histories.  Good though, that we were able to present him on the day before he died with a copy of the book written from the material he had helped collect.

25 October:  Miss Steward from Rushden presented us with six volumes of the parish magazines from the late 1800s and early 1900s.  An invaluable resource.
