Village hall update - The village hall now has gas central heating installed, and the works have started on repairing the flood damage. The delay has been caused by the length of time it has taken to dry the hall out and the crack that appeared in the main hall floor. Once all works are completed we will hopefully have a re- opening party, details to be confirmed at a later date.

We are planning a working party once the weather has improved to decorate and work on the outside of the building, if you are interested in lending a hand please contact Sue at the village shop, food and drink will be provided.
