Tony Brooks has written an obituary for Geoffrey Harris that may be of interest to Poynings folk that knew him.
“Jeremy Hodgkinson, author of a book on iron firebacks, is trying to track down this rare and unusual fireback that was illustrated in The Connoisseur magazine in 1915. It was reported to have been found ‘in a brook at Poynings’, and he would be very interested to know if it is still in the neighbourhood, in the hope that he might get to take a closer look at it.
Another similar fireback recently came to light in Herefordshire. If anyone has any information, would they please contact Jeremy at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
There have been a few break-ins in the Village recently. Stuff taken from garages. Please ensure things are kept locked.
