I was saddened to learn of the recent disastrous fire at the Star Inn, Harome. I recall many happy hours spent there.

When Canon John de Beverley Bateman was Rector of Harome, the Star was always referred to as ‘the Parish Office’!

I am sure I am not alone in wishing the present owner success in its resurrection.
