The Dome Leisure Centre in Mildenhall has kindly agreed to act as a pickup/drop off point for the digital camera. Any team member wishing to borrow it for the project should contact Joe (01379) 646046, who will make all the necessary arrangements. You can then pick it up and use it for up to two weeks. It is even easier to use than an ordinary camera as it holds up to 60 pictures and you don't have to work out where to put the film in!

New Villages Online (again!)
Since our last email Brandon and Freckenham have started to publish online. Freckenham has a section on Oral History. Within 'Gentle Stroll' section words and pictures conjure up a village at the early part of last century and their church article will have bells ringing in your ears (literally!)

TOC added
A Table of Contents has been added to the bottom of each community's home page. This makes it even easier to see what is on the site and also to go straight to pages of interest. You can still use the top menu bars to go to any of the main sections of a site or the left hand menus to do to the subsections, visit the newsgroup or return to 22villages home.

Interested in another Records Office Trip?
Some communities have asked for us to run another Bury Records Office trip. We are happy to arrange one if there is enough interest. Could you let us know if you and others in your team would like another evening in the company of Sheila Reed and her helpful team at Bury St Edmunds Records Office.

Click to be taken to Santon Downham's Oral History sectionA Sound Success
Santon Downham has just published an excellent section featuring many oral histories including reminiscences of the First World War. Cutting edge technology has enabled us to deliver sound and pictures within seconds thanks to streaming technology. If your computer does not have the necessary software drivers installed the 22villages web page will automatically detect this and provide simple instructions to enable you to enjoy the full 22villages multimedia experience.

 There are now 197 days until the end of the project...
The last date for submitting your community's edited, referenced information and photographs is Saturday 30th September 2000. Our aim is to have 1,000 books (5 each) and 1,000 cds (3 each) available by Christmas.
