Bury Record Office Final Trip Tue 23 Nov, 7.30pm


Those who have gone on previous 22villages trips have always said how useful these evenings are. This will be the final one we run via the 22villages initiative, so I hope to see a good turnout! Those villages that book in advance (via Joe) will have information and documents relating to their village laid out on the night. So book now!!!
Moyses Hall, Wed 13 Oct
Another great turnout with 19 enthusiastic people from villages including, Tuddenham, Santon Downham, Wangford, Lakenheath, Moulton, Mildenhall, and Red Lodge. Much was learnt about the history of Moyses Hall and also artifacts from every village attending were on display. Cameras were available and many used the opportunity to photograph their communities exhibits to help illustrate their articles on their website.
Anti-virus software
Don't Panic!!! I came across a FREE anti-virus utility that is installed as an integral part of your Web browser. My advice is that if you have no virus protection on your PC that you consider downloading this, as any protection is better than none. Support is offered for Internet Explorer, Netscape, WebSurfer and America Online. The program activates when a file is downloaded from your browser. Scans are performed on programs, .Zip files and Word documents. ViruSafe WEB is very easy to use and provides a measure of protection against the most likely source of computer viruses, it is available from http://hotfiles.zdnet.com/cgi-bin/texis/swlib/hotfiles/info.html?fcode=000H27&b=
Another 22villages Resource for you - The OED
The Oxford English Dictionary is now available to all participating communities via email! As an example Santon Downham came across the word 'advowson' and were keen to find out its origins and meaning. An email to OED@22villages.org came back with a 2 page answer! It was first used in...
1297 R. Glouc. 471 Eni striuing..betuene a lewede & a clerc, vor holi churche thing, As vor voweson of churche.
and meant "The ‘patronage’ of an ecclesiastical office or religious house"  Special thanks to Sarah from Cavenham for providing this service to the 22villages community.
Next Open Meeting Wed 15 December, 7.30pm
