One of the first warm sunny days of the year greeted the youngsters of the village when they met at the herb garden last Sunday to re-paint the chimney pots which usually stand in the flower bed at the entrance to the village. They were last re-painted well over a decade ago when there was still a village school, and named after the teacher of the day, Miss Potts. Resplendant in therir new colours , they'll be back in their place in time for the summer planting season. See all the photos HERE

The annual Xmas Seniors Lunch is one of the highlights of village life. Generously funded by the Ferguson Bequest the older generation (aka The Wise Ones) in the village enjoy a great lunch, great company and fantastic entertainment. It is a great cross generational event, with the young people in the village serving food and joining in the entertainment whilst their parents cook and serve the food, lay out the hall and tidy up afterwards and the over 60s sit back and enjoy.

The Childrens' Christmas Party is always much looked forward to and extremely well attended by the young people of the village.

The Fete is one of the highlights of the year, featuring all the usual stalls including bric a brac, books, home produce plus lots of childrens' games and of course the tea tent to sit back, relax and take in the atmosphere.

Time for a spring clean.  Second Time Round provided a great opportunity to recycle clothes, bags, shoes and accessories. For a £5 donation to Hall funds participants could take as many donated items as they wanted whilst enjoying a glass of proecco and a chance to meet up with spring just round the corner.
