On Saturday I was in Mickley. It's a fascinating village with a wonderful history. Jim Standish is a very well respected former local headteacher and the President of Prudhoe and District Local History Society. He has written a delightful book on the history of the village - 'The Drumming of the Poss Sticks'.
I was pleased to help give the book its official launch. Well done to Jim, Ron and all the others who did so much hard work to bring this wonderful second edition back to life. My thanks as ever to the wonderful Moira Wooldridge, Prudhoe's Community Photographer, for the photo.
