A mixed bag this month.

I read a number of Victoria Holt/Jean Plaidy books as a teenager so “The Queen’s Confession” was a blast from the past.  It’s the fictional autobiography of Marie Antoinette – a good read.

I recommend also the updated Northanger Abbey by Val McDermid – very witty and well written.

Finally, and to make up the numbers “An Heiress’s Guide to Deception and Desire” by Manda Collins, set in Victorian times but with modern language.


Next collection from the Foodbank is on Wednesday, 24th April.

Your continued generosity is much appreciated.


This month’s walk will be an earlier start of 09:30. We will be leaving from Ridlington Church porch on Saturday, 20th April.

Light refreshments will be served afterwards, so if you would like to join, please let Debra know.

Mentioned many times in the Bible, the white lily symbolises purity, rebirth, new  beginnings and hope and is most often associated with the resurrection of Jesus Christ as observed at Easter. It is also associated as a symbol of gratitude and of remembrance.

If you would like to give a donation towards the Lilies in the Church at Easter, please pass your donations on to Louise Fox.

Thank you.



Three books I enjoyed and would recommend.

Gill Paul’s “The Affair”.  Set in 1961 in Italy during the filming of “Cleopatra”.  An excellent plot with well drawn characters, a story of love and betrayal with the glamour of Taylor and Burton.

Leigh Russell’s “Rachel’s Story” – a dystopian future following world war, pandemic and food shortages.  Makes us contemplate our own world and demonstrates the resilience of the human spirit.

Finally, a Lindsay Gordon mystery by V.L. McDermid “Booked for Murder” – set in London’s publishing world an award winning author is executed in the same manner as her latest (unpublished) novel…
