Robert Dyer, Bures from 1946 until 1969
I used to sing in the Church choir when Ethel Hume was the organist, and my brother Tony Dyer used to play the church organ in Mount Bures Church where I went with him to pump the manually driven bellows

I can remember the river freezing over and one of the group I grew up with, took his Norton 650cc motorcycle onto the river at the roadbridge and drove it along the frozen river.
