A snapshot of life in the village
1987 - 2007




The Parish staged its first exhibition in May this year at the Keene Hall. A steady procession of visitors passed through the Lodge Room and on into the main hall when the show opened at 2.00 pm. With every available space filled with exhibits, a small marquee was put up outside the kitchen to serve refreshments. During the afternoon , the Youth Service formally presented the Parish with the old village pump which had recently been discovered on their premises. Vice chairman Gordon Cameron in accepting the gift said he hoped that a suitable place would be found for the pump to be permanently on display. The colourful displays set out by local organisations attracted considerable interest and many reported increased support for their activities. A star attraction was Ron White’s display of photos of old Galleywood.
