Annual Parish Meeting

Wednesday 17th April 2019     19:00 - 21:00
Upstairs in the Village Hall, Bridge Street, Kelsale, IP17 2PB

This year, we are delighted to delve back in to the British Film Institute’s archive and offer you a unique viewing of a 1934 Gaumont-British production featuring a sun-kissed Saxmundham as the subject of this attractively-shot, educational film.  We learn why Saxmundham’s Viking founders chose to settle there (in reality, their boats could go no further up the river Fromus, while the gently sloping valley meant plentiful water and fertile soil!).  You’ll also get a fascinating introduction to the local crop and livestock farming of the time with horse-drawn ploughs and laboriously hand-cut sugar beet.

Light refreshment provided
