These were sent to me by Rosemary Beech the daughter of Constance Beeson (formerly Pepys-Goodchild) in case they were of interest to families in the village. She wrote the following, about her family’s connection to the village.

“My father George William Pepys-Goodchild, descendant of Samuel Pepys the diarist, lived in South Kilworth for 60 years and both my parents are laid to rest in the churchyard here. My mother was involved with various things in the village – the Womens Institute, the Mothers Union and the Bowls Club – and she regularly attended church services, so she knew most people over the years. I doubt if there would be many people left now who would remember her as as you can see from the service sheets many have long gone, but she knew them all. She loved the village life and being involved, she always helped on the cake stall at the village fete and I remember she won the best ankle competition ! My father always walked our donkey to the fete to give the children rides.”
