After Mrs.Betty Hodgson moved to Church Farm House she soon became involved in village life. She was a valued member of the church often doing the flower arrangements. As President of Honingham Womens Institute, and a member of the darts team, she invited members to her house where they spent many happy afternoons playing tennis and having cups of tea and cake. Many parisheners have fond memories of their children having lots of fun in the swimming pool on the games afternoons. We also enjoyed walking round the garden and viewing the snowdrops. Table Tennis was another of her interests and she was a very good player. She will be remembered with affection by the people of Honingham.

Roella Trudgill contacted us via the Honingham website to say that she is delving into the history of her family and would love to see the Ailwyn Cup and any photo’s we have of the Fellowes or Ailwyns. Susan and Ray Grant, Julie Turner and Linda Human met Roella in the Village Hall and were able to tell her a bit more about her late Grandfather and family from photo’s and history extracts that have accumulated in the Honingham History archive. Mary loaned us the Ailwyn Cup for the day and Roella was able to take photographs of it. Thank you to all who helped! We have received this from Roella:
I really can’t thank you enough for arranging for me to see all the memorabilia relating to my ancestors – it really is much appreciated. Please convey my thanks to the others, whose names escape me so please could you remind me of them?
Below is a photo of me with the cup and the other one is of my grandfather, the late Sir Edward Fellowes, Clerk to the House 1954-1961, (b1895/d1970),cousin to Carol Fellowes, 4th Lord Ailwyn, (b1896/d1988)
My very best wishes from Roella.

The Shrine has been re painted (Mike Amiss Signs) and looks really good. David Bishop and his team of helpers (John Skipper, Ray Grant and Tony Reynolds) spent last weekend replacing the old stones around the Shrine with 4 tons of shingle and 2 ton of slate………it looks great! Well done to all. Just in time for the Dunkirk Veterans Remembrance Service which will be held in the Village this Sunday, 6th November.
