The USAF Commander of Special Forces has offered a wonderful Christmas present to each community involved in the 22villages project. Early in the new year they would be willing to take high resolution aerial photographs of the villages and towns (that wish this) and make them available as part of their project records. So if you would like to take advantage of this unique offer, consult within your community to get permission for the fly over (all this will happen in one day) and confirm your wish to be involved by Mon 31st January 2000. We are the first project of our type to ever attempt such an exciting joint venture and this is sure to gain us even more national recognition.

Nearly 30 people turned out on a freezing night to hear David Cleveland from East Anglian Film Archive show local films dating back to the early part of the century. Villagers from Dalham, West Row, Cavenham and Eriswell filled the hall and were rewarded with a fascinating talk, tea and hot mince pies. A big thank you to Dalham for an excellent evening. Those wanting to find out more about the Film Archive should visit
