VILLAGE FETE SATURDAY 12TH AUGUST

Everything is on course for a great Fete this year to be held on the Green!

We can expect a wide range of entertaining and interesting stalls including one dedicated to the work of the wonderful charity, SSAFA.

Refreshments will be available from the familiar Church Tea Tent and there will also be a bbq run by the Shop.

Live music should help everything go with a swing.

So let’s hope for fine weather and lots of fun!

If you are able to help set up we shall be starting at about 8.30am.

If have any books for the book stall please leave them with Polly and Oz at Curtle Cottage.  Contributions for the tombola stall will be most welcome – please hand them in to the Shop who will be the main collection point.

All proceeds will be shared between the Church Tower Fund and SSAFA.

(In conjunction with the Beer & Cider Festival at the Trusty – see below)

If you are interested have a look at the Parish Council notice board and/or see Village Agent for further information and how to get involved.

SEARCHING FOR MINSTEAD’S LONG-LOST POOR HOUSE (2)

P1010164

Braving variable weather conditions, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday saw a number of people surveying in the field adjacent to Lyndhurst Road between North Lodge and Ivy Farm Cottage through several means including a geophysics survey using an RM15 twin probe resistance meter and a Fluxgate Gradiometer(!), dowsing and a metal detector. The raw data from the first two has been downloaded and shows …….. well, sadly not much at present that is intelligible to amateurs! However, the NFPA’s archaeologist will do further analysis to look at what might be indicated and guide the group in where to focus their efforts. He thought everyone did really well and shouldn’t be downhearted at this early stage. The 3 days were fun, frustrating and physically exhausting in equal measures but best of all this is proving to be a great community activity, with new friendships formed in adversity and new skills mastered by all. More work is planned on Weds 9th and Thurs 10th so keep watching out for more activity and news!
