Our project has been awarded 1,800 worth of sponsorship from Microsoft UK, in the form of three copies of Office2000 Professional. This includes the latest versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, FrontPage (the web design package) and Access. If your community would like to make a case as to how its contribution to the 22village project would be enhanced if it could use this software, please email or phone direct on 01379 646046.

Historic Photos
The site might be worth a look they are building a photo archive of every listed building in the country, so there should be a few Forest Heath ones there!

In The Press (again)
Elveden has been the focus of an interesting article in the Bury Free Press recently (19/5/2000) focusing on their 22village wartime section. It highlights the fact that contributors 1,000s of miles apart have worked to give a great insight into life in the American base at Elveden. Well done, team members Gill and Neville Turner. Elveden has a village fete coming up (Sat 01/07/2000) - everyone is invited!
