Another village meeting, a sequel to that held in October 2005, at which long-time villagers discussed the way things used to be 50 or more years ago. This time we will look at the subsequent period, with particular focus on the St Edmundsbury Bacon Factory, which sadly closed in June this year after 95 years as a most important part of the life of our village.

The meeting will be at the Blackbourne Hall, starting informally with drinks and a small exhibition at 7 pm. and the discussion will begin at 7:30.
