The Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration

Our Community

The strength of our community is in the willingness of people to help each other and contribute to the well-being of the village. Whether that’s driving the community bus, supporting the community car scheme, going to the many events in the Village Hall, belonging to one of the many clubs and associations in the village, supporting the village shop, fund-raising or helping at the annual Show
