(August 1999) The Missing Bench

It is sad to see that someone has seen fit to remove the metal seat from the Elm cross roads.

I believe that this seat was given to the village in memory of Irvine, the climber who was lost on Everest, by his aunt. It was placed by the old elm tree and was there until last year when it was repaired and moved to the other side of the road, to improve visibility at the junction.
