Hopefully you all attended St Mary Magdalene Church’s flower festival this last weekend. If you did, you will have noticed one of the displays was on the GVFB.
The show was titled “In’spire’ations of Northamptonshire”, and each display was based on an inspirational Northamptonshire story. So, we’re not supprised, that we were chosen.
Many thanks and well done to all the arrangers who contributed to the event: Margaret Baker, Val Bellamy, Kathryn Brown, Maureen Crouse, Vic Crouse, Esther Gordon, Jenny Harker, Margaret Leaton, Veronica Richardson, Georg Shiells, Sherry Stokes, Margaret Tuffin, Georgie Ward, Lisa Wilkinson and Rosemary Wootton.
The GVFB were proud to be asked to help get Geddington School’s new allotment ready for use. As you can see, our green-fingered experts were as helpful as can be expected and the job was done in record time.
When Geddington receives a new Vicar, it has been known to host a walk around the boundary of the parish, ‘Beating the Bounds’. Not specifically a Brigade event – it is open to all – but many members and their families were present.
12 miles later, and we have the following photos to prove it actually happened…
At the request of the Newton Field Centre management, a task force from the Geddington Volunteer Fire Brigade set about restoring some kind of order to the churchyard, which had become overgrown with brambles and ivy.
After a viscous battle lasting some 3 hours, the 9 GVFB volunteers emerged victorious (with only one or two scrapes) to enjoy bacon butties coated with brown sauce.
