We had a lovely afternoon in church on Sunday 25th July. This was the first time that we had been allowed to hold our regular fundraising and social event since the start of the pandemic.
We had a good attendance – plenty of lovely cake – and we raised just over £100 for the church.

The fascinating life of our village school over more than 300 years is now revealed in a new book by Alison Symmers and Jill Tolson.
- the history of the school
- short biographies of all the masters and teachers since 1642
- personal recollections of children who attended the school between 1924 and 1959
- the attractive building itself through a photographic tour
All profits from the sale of the book go to the Old School and help maintain this important village feature.

I took the last of our donations to the foodbank this morning, There was 25Kgs. The Foodbank volunteers were delighted.
This makes a total of 60Kgs collected from Abthorpe during November and December. A brilliant result. Thanks you to everyone who took the time to buy an extra item and pop it in the box.
