Exhibition of Farming Memorabilia  

Entitled ‘Sickles & Scythes’, the display of old farm tools in the Gildhouse over the weekend of August 2nd & 3rd was a chance for many people to talk about times past, there were items associated with harvest, ploughing, root crops, dairying and farm stock. The scythes, hay forks, root hoes and topping tools gave a reminder of times when most of the power used on the farm was man-power. Of course, horses were also a very important part of farming life and the old stable made an excellent place to display some items of horse equipment.  There were also photographs from the last century, and a delightful small corn dolly display.

Appetising lunches and cream teas were available and much appreciated by the visitors. Many admired the Gildhouse and remarked what a wonderful setting it was for such an exhibition. The exhibition was part of the Gift Aid weekend, organised to help raise funds for our lovely church. The fundraising project at the moment is aimed at getting better heating into the church.
