On Friday 23rd August more repairs to the church roof are to begin. The contractor has set aside all day for this work, so, for your own safety, please do not enter the churchyard. I hope to put up reminder notices on Thursday on or near the gates.
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.

Just thought I’d share with you the glorious wild garlic blooms in Darwell Wood, they seem to go on for miles and are simply breathtaking.
The photo was taken last Tuesday when walking our pup (Alfie), we go regularly about twice a week and Darwell is enchanting in all seasons.
