PARISH COUNCIL MEETING: The rearranged meeting for the parish council is on Thursday, October 29, in the village hall at 7.30pm. Open session 7.30pm to 7.50pm.

If you have not already completed and returned your Village Plan questionnaire, which was included in the recent newsletter, would you please do so as soon as possible.

FESTIVE SUPPER: December 11. Following the success of last year’s new pre-Christmas event at the Hall, we find that the 50 places for our Festive Supper on December 11 are already fully booked. Hurrah, and thank you so much for your support. However, although this is most encouraging, we will be very sorry to have to disappoint any future applicants. So, as the date is still a little way off, a waiting list is now in place, so do please ring Annette McBride on 01424 871629 to get your name on that, if you would like to come should there be cancellations. In order that anyone on the waiting list can be told promptly, we would ask you, please, to pay for your tickets as soon as possible (£10 a head) and certainly by November 11. Meanwhile, we are having great fun planning a delicious meal and some intriguing new entertainments for your diversion.
