Ice on FootPaths
Hi Graham, When you are doing the many updates I keep sending you could you think up an article for me please. Headed - Ice on the FootPaths. Then some words around the fact that during any icy spell Scrooby may encounter there are limited supplies of road salt available to Scrooby. These will be placed strategically around the village by Parish Councillors but should anyone not find them or need some then please call Tony Smith on 0797 483 6978 to obtain some rock salt. Or something like that...... Ta the muchly Best Regards Tony Smith Clerk - Scrooby Parish Council Mob: 07974836978 email@example.com

You can see clearly the medieval fish ponds between the manor and the railway (the series of large depressions in the grassy area at the top centre of the picture).

Hester Benjamin: Adventures of a Pilgrim Daughter
Scrooby's own Jennie Robbins has published a book for children; a story of friendship, love and adventure, set in Scrooby, England, at the time of the Pilgrim Fathers. A work of fiction for young teenagers based on historical events in the year 1607.
Hester and Mercy are as close as sisters; nothing can come between them. But events are about to shake their peaceful village life to its roots and change things forever. How will their friendship survive when they are forced apart by their families and their faith?
You can buy the e-book for Kindle on Amazon.
