It was lovely to meet up with residents in Westhorpe along with the Rural Coffee Caravan and listen to some of the host of things that makes their village so special for them.

Our Creative Facilitator, Alison, had already collected many comments from villagers and these, together with a lively discussion amongst the group, contributed to Dean’s poem all about the wonders of Westhorpe.
Amongst those wonders were speculations of just how many bits of Mary Tudor, Queen of France, have been buried/moved and generally chivvied from pillar to post, even when dead; the pew in the church that is always left empty out of respect for the person they feel is seated there and the shop in the neighbouring village that sells everything from a baby’s bath to a clap of thunder … well, I thought the gentleman said bath, but maybe I heard wrong.
Dean will be typing up the poem and we’ll be publishing it here, as well as in places around Westhorpe.
