The Village Fun Day was a great success! lots to do and see and brilliantly organised & executed by everyone! Particular personal thanks to Graham Allison for all his hard work, we had fun participating and running a stall and very much look forward attending/contributing to the next one.

I seemed to have forgotten to keep Oxborough Messenger up to date as much as I would like to. I am going to make a renewed effort! This site is wonderful and the Noticeboard in particular - Kelvin's History group is a perfect source for anyone interested researching their family history linked to Oxborough or Oxburgh Hall. Wednesday coffee mornings are a good time to pop into the Bedingfeld to match faces to names of the village, such as Kelvin's. All welcome!

I would just like to congratulate Mike and his team for organising and running such a comprehensive and excellent website. We welcome the link to our new venture, The Bedingfeld Arms which only opened on 9th March after it had been closed for quite a while. I have lived in Foulden for 22 years now and so know the area well - and have particularly enjoyed meeting so many fabulous and interesting people who I never knew lived here. We are lucky to live in such a vibrant part of Norfolk! I look forward to meeting you when you pop in the newly decorated Bedingfeld Arms - with log fires, wifi, Frothy Coffee, real Ales, full bar and 9 bedrooms B&B! Dogs, children...all welcome especially if well behaved. Catherine Parker

I grew up in Oxborough, and my sister just told me about this website. It's a great way of keeping in touch for ex-pats like me, now living in Australia, to keep in touch with my old home town. Great website, loved seeing the photographs, and good to see that the church roof restoration will soon be under way.

Does anyone remember anything about the Silver Threads Club. I believe both my grandparents Bertie and Elsie Clarance were founder members. Also would there be any info regarding my grandfather Bertie Clarance... he was on the parish council for 13 years, and the church council for 8 years.

I remember Bert and Elsie very well - we lived in Church Lodge and they used to walk past our house to the shop chatting away. In those days people sat outside the front of their houses and would stop and pass the time of day - those were the days!

My grandparents (Bertie & Elsie Clarance) owned The Red House until the 70's. I vaguely remember visiting there when I was about 5 years old. I must re-visit Oxburgh sometime, it looks a lovely place, and my grandparents are resting in the churchyard. Great website!

Lovely site, only just found out about it. Have some old pics of Oxburgh which I am only too happy to share via the site.
