Chairman spends a bright (nearly) new penny

Members of the Langton Matravers Allotment Association gathered on 17th December to witness the opening of their new compost toilet, which was formally opened by Chair of Langton Parish Council, Cllr William Knight. Producing a bright shiny 1916 penny from his pocket, Cllr Knight paid tribute to the hard work of members of the association, and in particular Richard Simpson and Collette Drayson, who had worked so hard to bring the project to fruition, before declaring the new toilet officially open.
