Did you know...? It turns out that the Village Hall is an Aries.
The site of the village hall became the village's property on 26th March 1926, thanks to a 999 year lease signed that year.
Amusingly, astrologers say that the ruling planet of Aries is Mars, the god of war, and its symbol the ram, a beast with a sometimes variable temper. Worse still, one website says those born under Aries have a "secret desire to lead the way for others."
Royalists will note that the hall is just a few weeks older than the Queen, born on 21st April 1926. Her Majesty is that most pacific and tolerant of signs, a cuspy Taurus. Sent in by David - for which many thanks. wm.
