Christmas Snow Scenes 2010
Snow returned to the village with a vengeance during the extremely cold weeks prior to the Christmas period. Whilst it made travelling in and out of the village extremely difficult, the scenes around the village were quite spectacular.

Nuevo Reto Update 2010
This photo gallery contains photos taken in November 2010 during Charlotte Pritchard's visit. Some of the Great Brickhill donation that Charlotte took out with her was used for a day out to a shopping centre which has an indoor rollercoaster; this was followed by lunch and ice creams and an afternoon roller skating.
The remainder of the advance donation was used to purchase an item of clothing for each of the children and to provide fruit for the Christmas meal.
The balance of the 2010 donation from the church will be used to help with the children's school fees for the start of the school year in January 2011.
A full report from Nuevo Reto can be found in the Great Brickhill event's section.
