The future stretches invitingly ahead for the whole community as the great centenary year unfolds with its hopes and fears, its friendships and feuds, and its memories and forecasts.
Dora Jessie Saint – also known as Miss Read - is undeniably one of the masters of witty, classically English stories. Her accounts of small-town country life are both light-hearted and tender reflections of society and human interaction, full of colour and detail, especially when it comes to the changing of the seasons. Nature is ever-present in her version of rural village life and more often than not plays a pivotal part in the community's daily lives.
In 'Village Centenary' the splendid community of Fairacre is going full steam ahead in preparing for the celebration of 100 years of their village. Miss. Read once again guides us through the events ahead, narrating the story of how the village prepares for this prestigious occasion. The people of Fairacre are not only concentrating on the centenary though, they are also preoccupied with the Caxley Spring Festival, the vicar and his bees. Some residents are even looking to move house and others are planning holidays…
