The Revd Robert and Caroline Evens were presented with a hand made garden seat by Sharnbrook church and a hand made coffee table by Felmersham church both were made in Oak by a local craftsman.

Ian Coomber writes: Felmersham can be proud that two people with close ties to the village have triumphed at this weekend's Le Mans 24 hour race. Arguably one of the most prestigious motor races in the calendar, it is a gruelling test of man and machine. The event was won overall by a Porsche 919 hybrid driven by Felmersham resident Nick Tandy, Formula 1 star Nico Hulkenberg and New Zealander Earl Bamber.
The leading class for road-based cars was won by a GM Corvette CR7 team led by Oliver Gavin (below, centre), son of Michael and Debbie. The latter victory was one of the hardest fought ever seen at Le Mans as the Corvette swapped places throughout the night with the leading Ferrari, only for the Ferrari to break in the closing stages.
