GVFB Vs The Eggheads

Tune in to BBC2 next Tuesday (29th) at 6pm to see us take on BBC2’s Eggheads.  We’ve been swatting up on our general knowledge in preparation for our showdown with Jeremy Vine’s collection of brainy boffins.

Watch us next week to see how we got on.  We’ll post the results here in case you miss it!


I won’t spoil your suspense and tell you if we won, but you can watch the entire episode below:

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.


Helping with Geddington School’s allotment

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.
