We’ve received some lovely feedback, including: “Just a few words of thanks to you all at the GVFB for lovely meal and evening entertainment”.

Here’s a few photos for you:

GVFB featured in Church’s Flower Festival

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.

2014 Newton Field Centre

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.

Recognition should also go to Fireman Brown for organising and directing the working party. Photos follow…
