Yes, another year in the life of geddington.net has come to a close. The website committee would like to say a big thank you to those organisations and individuals who have sponsored or continued to sponsor us over the past year. We have been able to add to our archive, continue with the reporting and recording of life in Geddington and, of course, provide you with all those important snippets of news that keep everyone in touch. With over 15,000 hits already this year, we know the website is well used in the village and in the wider community!
We hope that many will offer us their sponsorship again this year. The full subscription is only £18 and this gives your organisation high profile visibility on the website pages and, if needed, a link back to your own website. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor please get in touch via the website and we will be happy to give you more details.
The website committee has still to finalise its plans for the coming year but it is likely to include a mini series on key buildings in the village such as Harden’s the butchers, Arnold’s grocer’s shop and extracts of the Geddington year from a diary kept by one of the residents in the 1920s, a short extract from which is included below.
Do keep checking your website and give us some feedback if you like (or perhaps don’t like) what you see.
Just a taste of things to come…
April : All smiles and tears.
‘Do not think I spend all my time walking in Boughton Park and attending Meets! It is so hard to refuse when one’s friends come en bloc to invite one out and the sun is shining and oh! it’s Easter and April!
Their Graces of Boughton and family held court in front of their grand old home. It is a sight almost beyond description!If you have never seen a meet of hounds on a golden morning you can never imagine it.
There in the background is Boughton House, palatial in size,… surrounded on all sides by stately spreading trees…’
