No Dallington Recreation Ground meeting on 17.09.19

Apologies, but there will not be a Dallington Recreation Ground meeting at the Village Hall on 17.09.19 as previously published.
I can only put this down as yet another senior moment!
We had a DRG meeting in March 2019 and will have another in March 2020.
There will be a full MPC meeting on 17.09.19, to start at 7.00pm and full details are available on a previous post, just go to the link below.

Wonderful photos from “Old Dallington”

A lady who recently bought a copy of our book – 6 Miles from Everywhere – has kindly sent me some photos of times gone by.
Her great-grandfather was Angus Henderson who was the local policeman in Dallington – very handsome man.
The little boy in the photograph on page 22 of the book is Robert Henderson, son of Angus and one little girl, possibly both are his sisters.
