The torchlight procession arrives at the Recreation Ground and prepares to light the bonfire, after the Guy has been installed on top of the wooden pile.

The fireworks were most entertaining and drew appreciative remarks.

The ceremony at both the War Memorial and at the Airfield Memorial was conducted by Denise Hobday. The wreath here was laid by George Bell, a member of the RAF in World War II and a local resident since that time. Pictured centre with Laura Smerdon, our oldest resident and, right,

Walking back along Park Lane appeared a selection of the village sights and all the more poignant in the light of the business of the morning.

Almost there! The new opening for the latest Business Centre in the village to come on stream - in Park Lane.

The huge field has been ploughed east-west, with each run taking a few minutes .. not there yet! The important footpath crossing this field enters from Park Lane across a footbridge and through a gap, exiting on the northern side. It will not be the same as the hard-standing available before, but will, of course, be reinstated after ploughing.

The new banner for the Community Shop looked better for some early sunshine, as did 'The Pod'.

Some random views on the way home with, left, the junction of Chapel Road with Old Mill Road and High Street and, right, Fox house guarding the junction of Moor Road and Chapel Road. The giant puddle belongs to School Road and was twice this size the following morning after another downpour!

The field adjoining the A12 between Park Lane and Birchwood Road that has been proposed as an industrial park. All traffic entering the village from the south and leaving towards the north would pass through a new junction in the middle of the A12 frontage of the field.

Views of 'Gridleys' on a fine morning; this must be the most attractive entrance to the village imaginable.

The footpath from the edge of the Community Centre field runs past the industrial area, and then past the field, now used for horses, but proposed as the home of 114 houses!
