VILLAGE VOICES: Ninfield and Hooe

Quote for the day!: “The only difference between TRY and a little ‘UMPH!’”. Now, if you take the new USA President-Elect out of the word TRIUMPH you’re left with I & H.. erm...’International Hysteria’?! What a week, and what ‘Interesting Times’ we are living in.. Wonderful Terry Pratchet’s novel has nothing on the current state of affairs! Anyway, let’s take refuge in our Village diary of events...!
