THE Millennium year may be gone but it is certainly not forgotten for residents of a Suffolk village.

Grundisburgh residents arranged a whole host of events last year to commemorate the special year.

THE Millennium year may be gone but it is certainly not forgotten for residents of a Suffolk village.

Grundisburgh residents arranged a whole host of events last year to commemorate the special year.

Now all the memories have been captured on film and saved in a special book that has been given to everyone who lives in the village.

The glossy book called 'Grundisburgh Celebrates the Millennium', has pictures from throughout the year, starting with the church service and bonfire on New Year's Eve.

It also includes pictures of the village show, the opening of Millennium Village and the making of mugs to celebrate the landmark.

There is also a list of the contents of the time capsule that was placed in the porch wall of Grundisburgh company Holbays.

The contents include letters and pictures by school children, the village history, a supermarket receipt and a Pokemon card.

The book was produced by community newspaper, The Grundisburgh and District News, thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Awards for All.

Another project is also under way to record an oral history, interviewing older people in the village about their memories of life there in the 20th Century.

Copies will be given to all residents and the complete recordings and transcripts will be held at Suffolk Records Office.

n Further copies of the book are on sale for £1 in the Old Forge Stores, Grundisburgh or by post from The Ford House, The Green, Grundisburgh with £1.50 to cover postage.
