The summer holidays may be over but the weather is still good and there’s time for one last barbecue! Come and celebrate the opening of the village’s newly refurbished bar! Free burger for everyone (first come first served). Families welcome. Bar with wines, spirits, soft drinks and some great real ales open until 11pm. All welcome, whether you visit every week or you’ve never been in before!

Our project was reported again in EDP and Evening News. The last test pits of the 2018 season will be dug on Saturday.

We have one on the corner of Wymondham Rd and Ashwellthorpe Rd and we will reopen and hopefully finish the one we started in the playing-field. Meet at 10am at Pear Tree Farm, Wymondham Rd and we will split into two teams to tackle the two pits.

We also have the finds from the last test-pits to wash and Keith at Pear Tree Farm has volunteered his garden as a base for the day, so people can do that there (if anyone has a spare tooth brush and washing-up bowl, they may be useful!).

Depending on how many people are interested, we will have another barbeque afterwards, either at the village hall as before, or at Pear Tree Farm. Please let me know whether you will take part on Saturday and whether you want to come to the barbeque, as soon as possible. If enough people are interested in the barbeque I will try to open up the village hall bar again.

Following the wetness we have rescheduled the practise test-pit digging session to 7pm on 7th August. Meet on the playing field opposite the School and Village Hall. Bring a spade, trowel and hefty boots! If anyone has an old garden sieve or two, you will find them handy too.shovel

I will take you through the art of effective archaeological digging (for beginners!) ready for your own investigation in August.

Please send me, Steve Hickling (steve.hicklin@norfolk.gov.uk), your email address if you wish to take part. No experience is necessary.

The Community Test-Pitting itself will take place on 11th and 12th August (there will be another chance later if you can’t do this date) at a site of your choice around the village – if not your land/garden do make sure the owners has given permission to dig…!
