The First Woman Bomb Disposal Expert - 24 April 2014

If you want to know why as a female army officer you should wear six pairs of knickers to functions or how the first woman bomb disposal officer ended up in a brothel in Ecuador on her birthday with eleven soldiers you will have to ask someone who attended April's Village Link meeting. As you can imagine, the talk was extremely amusing and very much enjoyed by everyone.

This was followed by Jenny's delicious nibbles.

Forthcoming events mentioned by members were the villages commemoration of the beginning of WW1 on Saturday  12th July commencing with a concert at 2.30pm at Sandon Church.

On 4th May 2014, Jean Handley will hand over her research on the WW1 Soldiers of Rushden to St Mary's Church for display.

Friday 16th May is Sandon Cinema Night.

Our next Village Link Meeting is on Thursday 3rd July when we are hoping that Stephen Poulter, ex BBC producer and now author will talk about his recent book on the History of Hertfordshire.

On Thursday 6th October, we are looking forward to a talk by Andrew Hambling on The Somme Offfensive.

Judge Lindsay Davies is unable to talk in October but will be coming to speak in February on Forced Marriages.
