M FowlerJune 21 1883 First Potatoes from GardenThe PavilionT he image above was published in the village newsletter, the Parish Pump, with a request for more information. Subsequently, David Walker told us that it was made by his father, Edward Walker, and after the bulding of the new Pavilion it was removed to Albert Kirbys garden. Harry Smith gave us more information; he said that it was actually the cricket hut. It was moved a number of times as the site of the cricket pitch moved but it made it backto its original site with the opening of the Playing Fields. It was used for the storage of cricketing items, as a changing room and for the serving of refreshments during matches when the score board was hung outside. The photograph was in a collection taken for a press article but this one was not used.BULLETIN 19 379'
