A New Village Walk


All villagers and friends are invited to a ‘Castle Hill Caper’ on Sunday, October 4th. Please meet at 1.00pm at the Rose and Crown. The walk is to Castle Hill – a good place for a stop to enjoy the views! – and back via Molly Carr Wood.

Marie Curie Thank you

As a finale to our wonderful Tour de France weekend, here’s a poster from Marie Curie to thank us for the all the donations dropped into the collecting tins around the village.

You should also know that on top of the amount in the collecting tins, the Saturday events and Sunday Concert allowed the TVA and Choir to donate a further £500 to Marie Curie, bringing our

Village donations to a whopping £663.34

Thanks to all who contributed to make this a fantastic event!
