The Sibford Brass Band played round the Village. They went to the Elleys’. All, except two Epwell men, being “old boys”. Mr. Elley said it brought tears into his eyes. Mrs. Elley told them they were “big fellows now, but she dared say she had smacked all their heads”.

“You have mine, lots o’ times”, said one tall fellow, “but it didn’t hurt me.”
