2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,900 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Tarrant Monkton Bakery Fire of 1921

Garth Matthews, son of Vera Crumpler (lived in Tarrant Monkton 1921-27), has sent me a lovely family story about the village Bakery, next to which the Crumplers lived in the 1920s.
The Bakery burnt down in 1921 and the grand-daughter wrote a story about it.
The Bakery was where The Post House is today.

Read the story by clicking on the
Parish Archive, Memories, Tarrant Monkton Bakery Fire section of this web-site.

Anybody with other stories about life in the village, please contact me,
John Goode 830527.
