Congratulation to all winners and thanks to the people who helped the Secretary make this year's show so successful.


News of  Brin Singleton
Some of you will remember Brin and Marion Singleton and their family who lived in Methwold road until 1998. You may not know that Brin is now Curate at St Andrew's Church, Soham. You may have seen him being interviewed on Sky News, taking party in the televised services from Soham and Ely or read an interview with him in some of the national papers during those appalling weeks in August.
Brin and Soham's vicar, Tim Alban-Jones, worked tirelessly during those two weeks - for example, keeping the church open to the public every day, from early in the morning until late at night, with very little time for a break.
Now, although the media have left and the public's attention has shifted away from Soham for the present, Brin's and Tim's work still continues. Please remember Brin and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this time.

Produce Show
I would like to thank all of those people who supported us with the annual Produce Show on September 7th. With 40 entrants staging over 300 exhibits plus nearly 100 entries from the children of Tots and Co, Pre-School and the Primary School it proved to be the largest entry for several years.
Thanks to the judges, all of who commented on the very high standard of entries in all sections of the show. The knitted mittens from the Craft section are on their way to the children in The Ukraine who I am sure will appreciate the kindness of all those people who donated these items.
Many thanks also to all of you who came to view the exhibits and see the presentation of the prizes, cups and shields your support is appreciated. A special thank you to those few people who stayed to the end and purchased the items of produce etc that were kindly donated by exhibitors. The auction of these items plus the proceeds of the raffle are what make the continuation of the show possible. Without these sources of income the show would not survive.
