Lighting of the Metfield Beacon
On 11 November at 6.45pm Metfield commemorated the centenary of the ending of the First World War with the lighting of the Beacon at Nut Tree Farm. Peter Mortimer, Bryan Wareham and Peter Schwier led a short ceremony, including a roll call of those who lost their lives in the First World War.
Just a few weeks to go until Christmas and Metfield has some fun events lined up to fend off the winter blues once these glorious autumn days come to an end. Don’t forget to get your tickets for the Panto from Metfield Stores or the Village Hall bar (details on the poster). There will be three performances and it should be a bundle of laughs. Stay cosy this winter and look out for anyone you know who could be vulnerable in cold weather, as well as those who might appreciate some company or having a meal cooked for them.
