Photographs and other records telling stories of days gone by in Seething and Mundham were the subject of a display at Seething Village Hall at the weekend.

The event, organised by Pat Everson, was held in aid of the Big C and featured hundreds of her own photos.

She said: 'I've always been interested in village history and I've got so many photographs and records.

'I think people who live in the villages are interested in their history and I've tried to cover a touch of everything, just to give people some idea of how people used to live.'

The photographs on display ranged from women picking fruit at Ringer's farm, classes at the school through the years, Godfrey's store in Seething and the construction of the village hall itself.

And founding member of the Big C David Moar came to speak to the visitors who gave a donation to the charity in order to see the displays.

Seething resident Ann Rudd was among the volunteers helping to run the event.

She said: 'My husband died of cancer and the Big C was a help to us. It's a great thing for the village, but it's also to get the Big C funds so they can do what they have to do.'
