Sailing the mighty ocean

IT may be the dream of many a wannabe mariner to leave the dreariness of a 9 to 5 existence and sail the oceans of the world.

Well, that dream became a reality for Di Bartlett and husband Alan who braved the high seas to voyage from South Africa to Tobago across the South Atlantic Ocean on their 48ft sailing boat Moonfleet.

On Saturday, November 11, in the village hall starting at 7.30pm Di will be reliving that amazing experience in an illustrated talk showing us the wonderful sights of islands in the South Atlantic rarely visited by tourists. The Bartletts are well known in the village - they used to live here and still regularly visit Di's sister Joy.

Tickets are £5 (to include light refreshments) from Sandra Rummery (01258 840007 or by email:
