The opening shots of the construction programme to extend the Community Centre - with the laying of an access roadway across the field.

The weather had been much too dry to suit the crop of potatoes in the huge fields inside the village square, resulting in heavy irrigation and waterlogged furrows. This has made using the footpath completely impossible for several months!

The foundations to the extension were laid quickly, once the shop had been hoisted through 90 degrees and away from the construction site!

A very unusual sort of aircraft to visit the Strutt was a Wasp helicopter, ex-RN.

A move had been made to form a local 'list' of properties that are not nationally listed, but could well have been included. Notable in the village is the Victorian post  box at St Margaret's Cross, as well as St Margaret's cottage beyond.

Workmen have cut back the line-of-sight  highway requirements of the proposed Travellers Site. This comes up for planning consent next month, and its agreement seems to be a forgone conclusion.

A few short days of growth and this  fungi, on the front lawn, was in fine shape to be photographed!

Wednesday evening and a 'phone call tells me the bonfire is burning, left. the next day, right, presents a forlorn sight but, as the press took up the story, the whole sorry event was turned around and the evening gained a great deal of publicity ... and justifiable public support. The real Bonfire Night was thus a great success!

Construction is now at the stage that, with the roof on, work can now transfer indoors. The community Shop, that has served us so well ... in its final resting place and looking good in the autumn colours.

The potatoes have been harvested, with great difficulty in the rains (with tractors rescuing each other!) and the vast field is revealed as bare ... and completely impassible as a footpath. The new business park in Park Lane is showing signs of economic life, centre, and a splash of red at the entrance to the village, right.

Subtle autumn shades soften the path to the A12, left, and dignify the elegant approach via Birchwood Road, centre, as well as add colour in Wick Road, right.

As the Remembrance Sunday service began, so did the rain. Mrs. Brenda Scott laid the wreath at War Memorial; as her brother is one of the names on the tablets.

By the time for the service at the Airfield Memorial the rain was steady and cold!

Tricia Ernst the Youth Worker, right, laid the wreath at this memorial for the Parish. She is American and it was felt most fitting that she could play a part in honouring the many American dead who served on, and flew from, the airfield in Langham.
