Hope you have enjoyed the summer! :  I always feel so sorry for the school children when the weather takes a turn for the worse as soon as they break up for the holidays. However things did pick up for Bank Holiday. We return to Monday mornings in the Pavilion after a break during August so do call in to see us.

Victorians: during the Autumn Term members of our group (David and Liz) will be working in the village school again helping the children in key stage 2 understand what village life in Ninfield was like during the Victorian era. They will be using the characters of Elizabeth Goldsmith (farmer), Thomas Avery (Headmaster and Postmaster) and Agnes Wrenn (shopkeeper). Our group have worked with the school for many years now and it is a great way to show the children their local social history.

 

From the Archive: in 1981 former Ninfield resident Sid Neve exchanged letters with Mr Hodgkinson (on the Parish Council) following his purchase of the Ridel book “Ninfield in the Nineties”. Together with a letter detailing memories of people and places in the village he sent a map drawn by Sid 50 years earlier. It clearly shows the importance of agriculture and market gardening in the village at the time.
