Pat PritchardIt is with great sadness that we report the passing of Pat Pritchard following a long illness, bravely borne. She was a founder member of The Froyle Archive and, having lived in the village all her 80 years, an invaluable fount of all knowledge about Froyle.
Visitors to our Village Reunions will remember with affection her smiling face welcoming visitors to the various exhibitions in the Village Hall. She is pictured here, seated, with a group of Second World War evacuees at the 2002 Open Day.

She will be greatly missed by all in the village.

This month we have updated the St Mary’s Church pages, adding some new photographs to the interior. As a result of this we are reassessing the dates of some of our photographs by Mr Varney as they may be taken earlier than we thought! Also, photographs of the completion of “Froyle Park” have been added to Froyle Place, Beyond 2012 - jump menu below.
Finally, a reminder that “Lest We Forget, Froyle in the Great War”, published to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the start of World War 1 is now available to purchase - follow the Book Sales link below.
