Thank you: On Saturday the 19th of August a merry group of volunteers met at the Village Hall to paint the fencing, clear a piece of land next to the Hall, which was hugely overgrown and needed some serious weeding to enable the flowers and shrubs that were planted to flourish and blossom. To also cut back overhanging trees and to generally smarten up the hall surrounds.
All this was undertaken with much chat and laughter and a half time break for tea, coffee and cake helped sustain the energy levels.
To Arthur Drinkwater, Justin Juby, Jeff Blackwell, Barbara McGoun, Kay Gingell, Phillipa Harrison, Michael Colman, Dick Thompson, Ray Green, Hans Alphonso, Dieter Janning A BIG THANK YOU.
