What cover would you have chosen for our book?

Would you have chosen a different cover? What image from the book do you think would make a great cover?  Why not let us know at our Talks, Tea and Cake event on May 27th from 2-5pm in Balsham? Join us for a cuppa and quiz the team on how to make a book - Berenice, our award-winning designer and 'book coach' will be there to answer your questions publishing a book. You can find out about maps from Dr. Seppe Cassettari and buy a copy of Balsham, a village story 1617 - 2017. The team would also love to hear memories from current and former residents. All are warmly welcome whether you are a resident or not.

Valuation Day 22nd April 2017

Already a queue had formed as the doors opened at 2.00pm and continued throughout the afternoon until closing time at 5.00pm.

In total 76 items were brought along for valuation. Martin Millard, Cheffins Director of Fine Arts proved very helpful and knowledgeable, and everyone went away very pleased.

As far as we know, there were no life changing valuations during the afternoon; if there was it was kept very quiet!

We are grateful to the Parish Council for allowing us to use the Pavilion, to Cheffins and to everyone who helped to make the afternoon a success.

Below are a few photos from the event.
