December 2020

Isn’t it strange that we all have the same basic features but none of us look the same except for identical twins, and it’s the same with tastes?  I love music and even in these horrible times I can burst into song, especially when I am doing the washing up or ironing  but Dave despite his Welsh roots, hates music, or perhaps it’s my singing.

I love old films especially those that I watched  in my teens like ‘ Singing in  the rain ‘ and Doris Day films and then when I had the children I took them  to see ‘Pinocchio’, ‘Snow White’ , ‘The Wizard of Oz’ to name a few.  But Judi Dench, the actress, wrote in our Sunday newspaper that she shuns Hollywood classics,  such as those above, as they remind her of her childhood.  She doesn’t know what she has missed.

During World War One up to 12 million letters were delivered to British soldiers every single week.  They were considered being just as important as food rations for morale.

I love irrelevant facts such as in l936 John Payne scored 10 goals in one game and this still holds the football league record.  He was playing for Luton Town against Bristol Rovers and the game ended 12-0.

No matter what form  Christmas takes, let us remember our family and friends are all celebrating the birth of our Lord in their own way, so pick up the ‘phone and call a lonely person, sing a carol in your own bubble and remember we are all God’s children in His bubble.

Ansley's August Jottings

Ansley Jottings – Remember The theme for our Flower Festival this year is ‘Remember’.  Some of you will remember the first flower festival held at St Laurence Church in 1965.  Some villagers may also remember Dr Baker, who used to practice in Ansley in the 1960s, before he emigrated to Australia.  While sorting through hi...
