About this memory
When I got married in August 1965 so many of the villagers handed in a 'minder' tea towels, kitchen ware etc. All useful things for setting up a new home. We had a 'shower' or show of presents when a date was fixed for all to come and view the gifts and in turn all were given cake and sherry. When I left the Dean we still had no phone, so all communication was still by mail and telegram. Postie got a tip at Christmas too.
