Last night I gave a talk to FODCY (Friends of Darfield Church Yard). This friendly group consists of people I have known all my life. What a wonderful thing it is when my 91 year old ex-next door neighbour is brought to the talk just to see me. I have to admit it brought a lump to my throat. FODCY do a wonderful job keeping the church yard trimmed and tidy and also renovating old and crumbling grave stones. I take my hat off to them for the work they do. Being a member of this group my wife and I do what we can to help raise funds to enable the group to carry on with their work.

My talk went very well and we all had a good laugh, we donated money from every book sold on the night. All in all they raised around £240 which is very good for a small association and goes a long way to help.

The next event will be a talk by the famous Ian McMillan on the 17th September in the church hall. It promises to be a good night. All welcome.
