DEREK’S DAWDLE

On Thursday 20th June villagers of all ages turned out in their numbers to follow Derek for this year’s walk through the village.

He not only talked about the history of the village and its renowned hall but also added his own memories about the changes, which had taken place from the varying uses of cottages to their respective occupants over the years.

Even a short downpour on the day didn’t dampen any spirits! Derek’s tales, which shone a light on colourful characters of the past, captured his audience - many of whom had taken part in last year’s walk already.

The story of the Langham legend which he mentioned in the church, certainly added a spooky touch to his recounting.

A big thank you to Derek for having delivered yet again, two hours filled with interesting facts and anecdotes, which made everyone marvel, think and smile about past life in this little village.

The occasion was rounded off by a get-together for some cheese and wine tasting in the village hall.

Thank you also to Holly and Henry for all their work and preparations and to everyone who contributed to making the evening a success.
