Carnival - but then we'll also have pictures from the Scarecrow weekend… it's never ending!
Do try and get around the village to see the scarecrows - and make sure you get your trail sheet from the Village Hall. Remember, all proceeds are towards Northwold Village Hall which needs our help. I believe there will also be lunches and teas available, so you can make a full day of it.

.S. Thanks once again Michael for your help!

Michael and I do really hope that everyone approves of our efforts with Village Life. There will inevitably always be mistakes, and we will always try to at least print an apology - or get it right next time.
It's been a busy month, particularly with Northwold village events - not just taking up my time, but providing loads of copy for the magazine.
Look out next month for pictures of the

School Reunion

The Whittington School Reunion was held at Whittington Church on Saturday 8th June. There were approximately thirty five attendees and a thoroughly enjoyable time was had by all. The time was  spent looking at old photographs, listening to anecdotes and renewing old friendships.
The event was organised by Mary Cross, Nee Rust and Janet Allen Nee Achurch, although unfortunately due to a flight delay, Janet was unable to be present on the day. Many thanks must go to Pat Voutt, Ivy Eves and Ken for their much appreciated help. £50 was raised from the raffle and donated to the Church Funds. The event was so successful that there is already talk of holding another reunion in the future.
