HISTORY STUDY GROUP: The meeting tonight (Friday) at 7.45pm in the Jack Hart Hall, Ringmer Village Hall will hear Sue Berry, an authority on local farming history, talk about the development of farming in the Lower Ouse Valley between the 18th and 20th Centuries. The changes became necessary to increase food and manufacturing output and in trading the results. How this was accomplished, why it was necessary and the changes it made to our landscape is described in detail. It should be a fascinating evening.
