There is just one week until Kate Mercer's forty-fifth wedding anniversary and the planning for the party is going well. But then a letter arrives for her husband.

Dear Coxwellers, Great and Little,
As many of you might know, we’re getting married this Saturday, 25 June, in the Great Barn and we’d like to invite any friends from the village(s) to pop in and share some of the fun! You’d be really welcome, either for the wedding itself or for the barn dance in the evening.
The marriage is at 2.30pm in the Barn. It’s a Quaker meeting, so it’s based on silent worship with spontaneous contributions and will last about an hour. This will be followed by tea, cake and a few outside games if it's dry (can anyone from Little Coxwell loan us a Smite set?!).
In the evening, after a dinner for close friends and family, we’ll be having a barn dance from 8.00pm so if you would like to join us to strip the willow it would be fun to see you! If you're able to bring a fold up chair to the meeting, or a bottle to the dance that would be great – but we aim to have enough to go round so don't let that put you off.
The evening will finish at 11pm, the music won’t be too loud, and there will be parking in the field opposite the Barn (with thanks to the Liddiards).
Really hope to see some of you then!
With best wishes to all,
Richard (Benwell) & Sophie (Stainer)
(currently of Fletcher's Cottage, Great Coxwell, previously of 4 Grove Cottages, Little Coxwell!)
