Several members of DRARA joined local historian Malcolm Graham for an entertaining and informative walk around our area on Saturday afternoon. The event was hugely oversubscribed, so a second event will be organised later in the year.
We have to report the sad news that Peter Marsh, a long-term resident of Divinity Road, has died. Peter Marsh was a renowned social psychologist, some of whose many achievements you can read about here.
We send our condolences to his wife, Patricia, whom he married in 1967, their children, Jessica and James, and their two grandchildren, Emily and Finlay.
• Peter Marsh, social psychologist, born 15 September 1946; died 9 June 2014
We had a beautifully sunny day for this year’s Open Gardens event last Sunday.
On a lovely spring sunny afternoon, people shed unwanted goodies from their homes and lots of neighbours walked our roads to pick up new treasures – or at least things of use! From light bulbs, to a gorgeous curtain to make a matching pair, people had fun finding what might be given away. “I got a new bike and my sister got a stool and badminton Racket!” said Finn aged 10 years.
Our next Freecycle is planned for Sunday 21st September. Let’s hope for good weather then too!
