At last the spring flowers: are starting to appear, and the daffodils on the main road are a welcome sight as you come into the village. Take a look in the churchyard, too.
Services at the Parish Church: on Sunday are Holy Communion at 8am and Family Service at 10am, probably in the Parish Hall. The long-awaited boiler is installed in the church, but the final checks could not be completed in time for last Sunday’s service. Services are likely to return to the church on Ash Wednesday, 1st March, but watch out for details. Following the Family Service there will be a roast lunch at 1pm in the Parish Hall. Treat yourself for just £8, but please buy your tickets in advance from churchwardens or from Archers Butchers.
