Mrs.Betty Hodgson’s funeral at St.Andrews Church Honingham on Monday July 10th at 2pm.

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.

Had an enquiry today from someone doing research on his family tree; trying to trace his cousin, surname Hanwell, who lived on a farm in Honingham……

Thats all the info I have, but if anyone has any info would they let me know on the Honingham email or tel 01603 880089
