Have your say

Sally North, well known for her Victorian School, is running her Victorian Hiring Fair from Wild Thyme Cottage at Rougham Hall on Friday from 11am to 4pm.

It will provide an opportunity for all the family to learn new skills in order to be hired for coutryside jobs – know your herbs, tie knots, make a corn dolly, do the washing, or churn the butter.

MrsWard and neighbours will teach young people the old countryside skills needed for jobs as maids, shepherds, gardeners etc.

You can roll hoops and spin tops, bring a picnic and walk among the ancient trees in Rougham park ... and find out what life was like for the children pictured above. There will be no charge, but donations can be made to the Red Cross and Mind. For further details ring 01328 838230.
