The item starts with an article describing the importance of wool in the history of England written by Margaret Lester. In Worfield, War having been declared, the Vicar has signed up as an army chaplain and has left the Parish. In his first letter he describes where he is and the sounds of planes droning overhead. The War meant changes in services and the Ackleton Room has had to be blacked out. However the bell will still be rung to call the parishioners to worship. It is such a shame that Cyril Lee has left because he was such a great writer of what was going on in the Parish and what we have for quite a while is a concentration on the religious aspects of the Parish rather than the weather, farming, what the children have been doing etc etc.
