If you want to see this wonderful village tradition continue, please come along to the AGM and consider joining the committee. Christmas Eve Nativity Service - The 5pm service on 24 December took the form of a playlet interspersed with songs and carols as we journeyed with Mary and Joseph from Nazareth to Bethlehem for the birth of the Christ Child.
Children were encouraged to dress up as either Shepherds, Angels or Kings to join with the 'cast' and they did not disappoint. The church was bursting at the seams with standing room only at the back. This was a very special and enjoyable service. The little girl Tabitha in the picture above standing next to Victoria Smallwood has written a little story inspired by her experience of this event - see facing page.

And it all went perfectly!! Rhubarb Traybake This recipe is courtesy of the National Trust and is apparently a speciality of Polesden Lacey, made with the early pink rhubarb that they grow in their kitchen gardens. Although it is delicious as a cake to have with a cup of tea it's also good warm as a pudding with cream or custard. Method 1. Place the flour, brown sugar, butter and 3 eggs in a bowl and beat until pale and fluffy. Pour the mixture into the tin. Make the cheesecake topping by whisking together the remaining 2 eggs, cream cheese, caster sugar and ginger.
Pour this runny topping over the cake mixture and spread into a thin layer. Sprinkle with the raw rhubarb all over. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Helen V.
The Royal British Legion Annual Poppy Appeal My sincere apologies for such a long delay in reporting the very satisfactory results of last years appeal. Thank you all once again for raising such a good result; a fine way to complete the year of Somme commemorations. John Ansley Initial investigations considered that there was some substance to a distant rumour of a connection with the Benedictine Order, but nothing was discovered and neither was anything discovered by investigations into those entities that used the symbol.
Another line of investigation has been pursuing the history of other Three Crowns pubs in the country of which there are around 20 scattered all over the country. Unfortunately, most have no idea of their pub's history and usage of the name, but some have reference to other events, e. It proudly states that its name refers to the martyred St Edmund who was honoured as the Patron Saint of England and whose emblem was three gold crowns on a blue background.
Almost nothing is known about St Edmund. It is believed that he was born in in East Anglia and that he reigned as King of the East Angles from until being killed in battle on 20th November or , his death shown in the attached medieval illumination. The kingdom of East Anglia was devastated by the Vikings after their Great Heathen Army advanced on the kingdom and killed him. He may have been slain in battle but tradition states that he met his death at an unidentified place known as Haegelisdun either near Diss in Norfolk or Maldon in Essex after he refused the Danes' demand that he renounce Christ.
On the orders of Ivar the Boneless and his brother Ubba he was beaten, shot with arrows and then beheaded. Legend has it that his head was thrown into the forest but was found safe by searchers who heard the cry of a wolf indicating where they should look. Edmund's body was buried in a wooden chapel near to where he was killed, but then transferred to Beodoricsworth the modern Bury St. Edmunds where in the AngloSaxon king Athelstan founded a community devoted to the new cult. His remains were visited by many kings, including Canute who converted to Christianity and rebuilt the abbey.
In the abbey and church were rebuilt again and Edmund's remains were re-interred in the new building. Coins commemorating Edmund were minted from around to when East Anglia was absorbed by Wessex. Some of it is fanciful, e. The shrine and monastery at Bury soon became one of the most famous and wealthy pilgrimage locations in England; the 13th century manuscript shows Edmund being crowned by angels.
The Other Side of the Window by S.Z. Berg
The cult gradually declined until revived by the re-appearance of Abbo's work in the 12th century. The shrine was destroyed in during the Reformation and the abbot and monks expelled. After the city was thought to have been saved from the plague in by pleadings to Edmund, a new shrine for his relics was built and his cult flourished for a couple of centuries. In the Archbishop of Westminster received some relics thought to be those of St Edmund, They were intended for the high altar in Westminster Cathedral but were housed in the Fitzalan Chapel at Arundel Castle where they remain under the care of the Duke of Norfolk.

The banner of St Edmund was attributed to him retrospectively in the second half of the 12th century, the crowns representing his martyrdom, virginity and kingship. This was also the banner or symbol used by Sweden since the 14 th century and by inference its connection to the Vikings who were responsible for the death of Edmund. The symbol also appears on the coat of arms for East Anglia and several entities in the area. There have been several attempts to re-instate Edmund as the Patron Saint of England the most recent being in when Greene King brewery launched a well supported campaign to restore St Edmund to his rightful place and to have 20th November as his saints' day.
Where does this leave the investigation? In the absence of any real evidence my leaning is towards the pub being named after St Edmund.
The period of the pub's origin ties in quite well with the period of St Edmund's reign as Patron Saint of England, but perhaps some evidence will emerge one day to settle the matter? Richard B.
