Residents of the village made a fantastic contribution to community life by getting involved in the village show.
Not only did they produce a vast array of competition entries but they also managed to raise the grand sum of £750 to help with much-needed repairs to the fabric of Tuttington church, the oldest building in the village.
Of the sum raised, a magnificent £203.30 came from the Spend-a-Penny pots (it’s amazing what you can achieve after a long night at the bar in the Banningham Crown!). This amount included 29.98 Kg of copper coins with the remainder made up mostly of silver. This amount of legal tender put the local Lloyds bank under pressure not to mention Jan and Jane who had to carry it into the bank under armed guard.
But, for all the amazing work that the organisers did to get the show on the road, some of the competition winners might think they have a bone to pick with them as they don’t yet have a full list of the class placings. So if you know how your entries were placed, Jan Lodge (Old Forge) would like to hear from you.
