Bygones, Curios and Collections Show

The ever popular appeal of nostalgia brought large crowds to this event organised by the Parish Council in September. The centrepiece of the show, in the Keene Hall, was a display of wedding and bridesmaids dresses. Dating from 1874 to 1997, the 20 dresses provided a perfect backdrop to the fascinating array of memories of the past brought along by local people. Some had searched their cupboards and brought a couple of treasured items from the past. Others treated us to a look at some of the meticulous collections that their hobbies provide. As usual, Ron White’s collection of photos was the source of great interest. The Norton motorcycle and the Morris Minor, along with a display of vintage prams, were displayed on the forecourt of the Hall to catch the eye of the passers by.
