Sue Ryder Sale Nettlebed

THE FINAL ITEM FROM MY OTHER BLOG

The Sue Ryder sale – Nettlebed – This Saturday

Today we set off for the Sue Ryder charity sale from Henley,

It is held in aid of the excellent Sue Ryder charity.  Sue Ryder have a nursing home in Nettlebed. It is rumoured that they may be coming to Henley when the Townland’s Hospital is rebuilt.

The house that the nursing home is in is magnificent.

 

The sales is very crowded.

 

 

Below is a tape recorded from the 70s.  I had a similar version to this made by Ferguson

The items on sale range from clothes, to sheets to carpets, to furniture, to electrical goods.  A massive range of books are also there.  I got a copy of “Henley Heritage” by signed by the author Jan Baldwin’

This is a preserved kiln, kept for historical purposes. It is a landmark in Nettlebed. Used for making bricks in days gone by

 

Finally some ancient stones in the grass by the roadside in Nettlebed, the caption in the photo below the shot underneath this text, gives part of the story about these stones.

 

Finally a mosaic shield
