Welcome to our website

Little Downham has existed since time immemorial-much of its history is still visible today although the real history the lives of the people who live, or lived, there is inside our heads.  I decided to publish online my father's pages of memories which he wrote in the early eighties and which go back to the thirties.  Since then I have added the contributions of several local people as well as the diary pages of the parish magazine from the late 19th century.   Along with the many websites which contain information on many aspects of the village's life it is surprising just how much has been said about the "village on the hill".

I would be delighted if people from the village or their descendants would contact me and tell us about their memories of the village and life there.

Little Downham family history and discussion

Subject: More than 10 bitcoins (~ $ 63,000) per day on wallets doublers. Hurry to earn a million ...

Hey. I want to share with all the great news!

A month ago an anonymous source sent me 7 bitcoins of wallets that double the bitcoins you sent and send back your purses twice as much.

I am familiar with blockchain technology and therefore did not believe it.

But my curiosity has gone up.

I sent at my own risk and 0.5 bitcoins to one of these wallets and in just 2 hours, exactly 1 bitcoin came to my wallet.

I was shocked!

Then I started working with these bitcoins wallets and revealed the regularity that one wallet can send 0.5 to 5 bitcoins per day from one purse.

At the moment I have 350 bitcoins of wallets from which I send 350 - 700 bitcoins daily and get twice as much.

For a month, I became a multimillionaire.

Another month I will work and become a billionaire.

I already got what I wanted, I quit my job, paid off all my debts, bought a good house and a car from the Audi RS4.

Now I feel like a human being and live for my own pleasure.

These are the good bitcoins of wallets I earn:

1BC2uQHHUdJzgRog7JMVE5cgWh37NCxwJc

1L2NgRwBXb5kiQ4uNDT5iKHN1As6kkt4rL

1CnZgLpuPhr9e5PhPEJnDS8fh8HCM5w5oz

1MaRdde6X7SGuoCdFNL2fmgpLomdx7peGC

Now many people improve their financial status with these wallets but keep it a secret from everyone.

I hate poverty, so I share with you all this method of earning, grab a piece of this huge and juicy cake.

I will remind you once again. Send from one bitcoin your wallet strictly from 0.5 to 5 bitcoins per wallet per day, otherwise you will receive the same amount that you sent without doubling.

This scheme of work is completely safe. You can work like me, create a lot of wallets and send them from each of them to the above wallets.
