    Hello. Is anyone in the village a relative of Eva Patrick year of birth around 1900 or Arthur Patrick born late 1890s? Their father was a Mr W Patrick and they lived on Kettering Road in 1907. If you are able to help, please get in touch.

      Hello Sandra,
      Thanks for your query, I hadn’t realised that there wasn’t a venue in the notice. The Afternoon Tea will be at The Old Dairy in Newton. It’s not a large village, so it will be easy to find.

    To all the people involved in the Flower Festivals at both the Chapel and the Church – congratulations on more wonderful displays this year.

    Although the flowers inside the chapel and church were wonderful–what about outside. I went to the churchyard to water the flowers on family graves and could not see them. They were covered in grass clippings and even most of the headstones, where you could not read the names. It was just pointless to leave the churchyard looking like that.

      Hello Melvyn
      There’s no doubt that the churchyard at the rear of the church is not so well-kept as the front, however, it’s also recognised that it’s not an easy piece of land to keep tidy. The other argument is that it is a useful piece of mid-village land for all types of wildlife.
      For many years, and on a regular basis, the Geddington Volunteer Fire Brigade used to ‘have a go’ at it and over the period of a whole weekend, with several skips and with many volunteers, did a wonderful job. Perhaps a word in someone’s ear . . .?
      If anyone would like to know the whereabouts of a relative or friend buried in the graveyard (earliest date found 1750), the Northamptonshire Family History Society is part-way through an enormous project to identify all graves in all Northamptonshire churches. There is a booklet available of the plan of the churchyard at Geddington as well as interior memorials. This booklet also covers memorials inside the Chapel. The booklet’s title is: Memorial Inscriptions at The Church of St Mary Magdalene Geddington. ISBN no: 1 902073 63 0.
