Scope and content

Since receiving the Guild of Our Lady of Ransom cheque for £500 (paid into the Wymondham account) , Fr Brown has been "trying to penetrate the mystery of the Attleborough accounts". They do not exist. Quidenham and Attleborough collections are placed in a bank account to which neither Fr Brown nor the parish priest for Diss have access. It seems that Fr O'Brien claimed to have authority from the Vicar-General to set up an "Autonomous Area" - Quidenham, Attleborough and surrounding villages. The Bishop seems not to know of this since the Ransom money was stated by him as not for Quidenham. At a recent parish meeting an Attleborough parishioner want to know what as happened to their money (£2,500 to £3,000 gathered at Wymondham's Christmas Bazaar). Fr Brown asks the Bishop to sort this out - money from two parishes in different deaneries going into one back account over which neither parish priest has control.
