Box 4 Darcie
After the massive success of Push 4 Darcie, Thai Boxing World Champion, Jordan Williams would like to show his support for the charity 4louis, with his own event Box 4 Darcie. Box 4 Darcie is an event where “thai boxers” with relatively no experience enter the ring, in the name of charity. The event is taking place on September 27th 2014, at the former St Lukes Church, Winterton. Ticket sales have proved very popular and the event looks as though it is going to be seen by an audience of over 250.

Trimdon Times Magazine
“Trimdon Times” was suggested as the title for a new quarterly magazine produced by Trimdon Village Hall and announced as such on their facebook page on 1st August 2014. This new publication has no connection at all with the Trimdon Times website or Trimdon Times facebook page, and I am now told it will be named “Trimdon News”. Their facebook announcement has been updated to reflect this. The magazine is expected to be published in September.
