If anyone has photos they'd like added to the village gallery on Flickr (I hear there are some sunflowers out along the Four Barrows Track!) please contact me at: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

The picture for today is from the Donald Barnes Challenge in 2005

Thanks to Jonathan for the great photo of the sunflowers along the Four Barrows Track

Very sad to hear that the fence in front of the seat on Ewin's Hill has apparently been vandalised. Photo taken 10th August 2014 (Don Davis) and on happier days in February 2013

If you're in the village today (Sunday 17th), do pop into the Memorial Hall between 10am and 4pm to see work from our talented Aldbourne Artists - organised by Andrea and Peter West with their hardworking team.

Andrea's mother, Nancy Barrett (nee Hawkins) was the first Aldbourne Carnival Queen in 1934 - eighty years on, the Crowning for 2014 will take place in the garden at the Old Malt House next Saturday 23rd August from 7pm (more information over on Aldbourne Net)

I must confess to a twinge of maternal pride!

We would like to collect photos of as many Carnival Queens as possible with a view to a display next year for the 100th Carnival. Please can you help?

Found this album on the Aldbourne Village Gallery today

Pictures of the Day 2008/9

I wonder what the oldest photo on the gallery is - perhaps that can be the post for tomorrow!

Looks like I started the Aldbourne Village Gallery in May 2008 - the first photos loaded up were from the Beating of the Bounds in that year.

The picture of the day today was taken on my way to solve a bit of a mystery.

Does anyone please have any information/photos of George Marshall Watts formerly of Whitley Lodge, Castle Street. Died 14th April 1937.

Thank you

Excellent day at the football field on Farm Lane yesterday for the Carnival Dog Show, Car Boot Sale and Donald Barnes Challenge.
Congratulations to all the organisers, especially for arranging a flypast by Vulcan XH558!
