The Bread Service

Thomas Roe lived in Scaldwell in the 17th century.  He was obviously a churchman and a great benefactor.  Apart from financing the gift of bread to the poor of Scaldwell, he was the instigator of several charities,  both here and in Brixworth,  to further the education of the inhabitants of the two villages. In his will he stipulated that bread should be distributed to the poor of the parish,  a thanksgiving service be held and a sermon preached every year on the 5th December, his birthday, failing which the charity should cease.  An application was made to the Charity Commission in 1988 to change the date of the Service  from the 5th December to the nearest Sunday to that date.   The Service and distribution of bread has been continuing for over 300 years.
