Village Hall: The Village Hall has had another spring cleaning session this week, when the ladies of the Committee descended with their weapons of mass destruction - of dust and dirt. The Hall is now looking even brighter and, if funds permit, will soon have new curtains too.

The Royal Oak: If you fancy a trip to the Mediterranean, but have not yet managed to get away, then head to the Royal Oak on Tuesdays or Wednesdays for an authentic flavour of the region! From this week, Maria writes, they will be offering delicious Mediterranean-style fish dishes every Tuesday and Wednesday, using locally-sourced fresh fish. So, prepare to be transported!
