   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.

Wow, what another great evening! Many thanks to everyone who came along and to all those who helped make it such a successful event. We give special thanks to our busy chefs and helpers; especially Wayne & Linda for the BBQ, Isabelle, Fiona & John for the wonderful array of salads and desserts and Yvonne & Julia for arranging the music. Also thanks to Kim & Sue for providing the liquid refreshments at their pop-up pub. As a result of both BBQs, in August & September, the village hall alone raised nearly £1000 and Save The Ploughshare an additional £455. Thank you to everyone for all your lovely comments about how much you enjoyed the evenings, it’s wonderful to hear your feedback.
