Pitsford Hall – Czeslaw Siegieda Photographer


Each year around Whitsun (the eighth Sunday after Easter), pilgrimages were organised from most Polish communities throughout the UK to two Polish boarding schools, one at Pitsford Hall for girls, Northamptonshire, and the other at Fawley Court for boys, near Henley on Thames. These annual gatherings had not only a religious significance, but were also important socially.

Rev Richard Coles – Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival


Rev. Richard Coles. From Pop to Pulpit to Paso Doble. He promised he’d come! For all those fans who were disappointed when he had to withdraw from the 2017 Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival, we’re delighted to bring you an evening with the nonchalant and charming Radio 4 Saturday Live presenter and erstwhile Strictly Dancing contestant.

He’ll be talking about his extraordinary career that has taken him from the 1980s band The Communards to his ordination as a parish priest. Broadcaster, journalist, MasterChef contestant and Big Painting Challenge presenter,
he’ll take us through the challenges of running a modern-day parish and a busy career in the limelight.

Goats’ dung could give farm renewable power | Totnes Renewable Energy Society


A green project to power Dartington with dung has been give a €£18,000 grant to fund a feasibility study. The study will look at how to set up a 100kW anaerobic digester producing energy from farmyard manure at Old Parsonage Farm on the Dartington Hall estate in Devon. Totnes Renewable Energy Society (TRESOC) has won the grant funding for the feasibility study from the Rural Community Energy Fund. If the study proves the renewable energy scheme is commercially viable, TRESOC will be looking at raising cash for its construction through a community share offer, so that the plant is owned by the local community – ensuring the economic benefits from the project are shared locally.
