Everyone Welcome

The entire population of the Suffolk village of Boxford (1,400) has been invited to America next year. The offer has come from Boxford, Massachusetts, as part of the bicentennial celebrations of the American republic.
Last night the rector at Boxford, the Rev. Alan Harrison, said: "It is a wonderful gesture. The American families have agreed to have us over as their guests and have even offered to pay half the cost of the air fares."
