Current matters

Report on the 2021 Donhead St.Andrew Fete

The Fete took place on 30th August, and at a meeting of the volunteers and helpers, Michael Hockney showed the results, which can be viewed here.

A video clip of the fete filmed and produced by Elizabeth Hockney can be seen by clicking here.

New video of St.Andrew’s Church interior

A video, shot by Dr. Elizabeth Hockney has been put on YouTube, showing many of the wonderful changes and improvements made during the works of the last four years. It also includes a sequence taken in the graveyard where Elizabeth and helpers have been clearing away undergrowth, cleaning up gravestones and laying out wildflower areas with interconnecting pathways, making a lovely setting for the new benches added earlier this year.
