A surprisingly fine evening in early July and Frances Reed was joined by six walkers and a dog who enjoyed a Golden Valley walk of about three miles. Over two hours, they took in an opportunity to check out Frances field, home to six Orkney sheep with a wild-life pond and new tree plantings. This was the first evening walk and its popularity has persuaded Frances to organise another. Keep an eye on the village notice boards for a poster.
The RHS Newsletter was distributed during May/June. If you would like a copy, please contact Lyn Hyde or Anne Wooster. Membership is £2 per annum and we gained new members at the June Village Fete & Fun Day for the Queen’s birthday. Our table in the village hall also attracted interest for ‘A Century Remembered’, the wonderful commemoration of one hundred years of Little Gaddesden at the turn of the century, which was produced by the RHS: hard to believe that anyone local doesn’t have a copy! We also have a double dose of Vicars Bell in one volume. The esteemed local school teacher wrote a history of Little Gaddesden which is paired with his memoir, ‘The Dodo’. Please contact us should you find yourself sadly lacking either of these go-to hives of local history!
