[13:48:26] Resident017:

Sorry for the irrelevant question but I'm ever so curious about the white coach that stops every day (I think) along High St. Is this picking people up/dropping someone off?
[13:49:13] Adrian Dale:

Delivering free School meals!! Big coach and only the hold is full
[13:49:51] Resident017:

Ahhh right 👍🏻 That'll stop me wondering, Thanks
[13:51:00] Resident097:

Good way to deliver tho as company will have been contracted for the year ... so keeps the bus running and people in work and food gets to where it needs to go
Clever way of diversity
[13:58:12] Resident131:

Adrian, I shall be pleased to put a name to a number when it’s all over. We are looking forward to meeting everyone on this group in person 😁
[14:30:31] Resident012:

Nobody on here should feel that anything they want to ask/say is irrelevant to the group. Anything that creates conversation in our community is welcome and I imagine most people on here feel the same!
[14:32:05] Resident038:

Nicely said

[14:46:08] Resident117:

Hi Ashley and Di - well put. Most of the conversations have been informative and or entertaining and fostering a brilliant sense of community. Great to be a part of it and not to feel alone

Mark the Clerk reckons ....

Looks like sometime after 1968 – the Watney Mann “red barrel” logo on top of the sign, and before 1982 - the walls were white by the time of the lorry crash.

Who remembers the big lorry crash?

Who remembers the USAF badge on the wall of the pub???? I do, I have been in the village for about 40 years. I used to go to the Working Men’s club down Foot Lane.
