Jenny Perry is creating a weekly diary to show what nature is up to in Dalham through the seasons. As someone who always thought a hedge was just a hedge this gives a fascinating insight into what some of us are missing out on. Visit Dalham's new web site by going to www.22villages.org and clicking on their name on the signpost.

Elveden Open Meeting
Last Wednesday's open meeting was attended by 20 people from Lakenheath, Moulton, Tuddenham, Red Lodge and many curious locals from Elveden. A current version of the web site was on display featuring the eleven communities now publishing online. Technical experts were on hand to show how to adapt images and send them via email. Several people requested that the technical support  for the 22villages project be extended beyond this year and that consideration be given to additional funding to help with expenses. It would be helpful to have other communities views, please email feedback@22villages.org We are also looking for a venue for the April Open Meeting - Any offers?
