A community day bringing back memories of how things used to be

Yesterday we had a fantastic day out at the Thringstone House Centenary Celebrations and Scarecrow Festival.

The turnout from the local community (and further afield) was amazing with apparently everyone getting involved in the many activities which were organised around the village.

Being born and growing up in Thringstone I remember days like this at the village fetes as a kid.

It was great to talk to so many familiar faces, all of us reminiscing about those times and hoping that the Community Centre can work through its current difficulties to face a bright future of delivering another hundred years of such celebrations.

Some photographs of the day are posted below:
