Village News

with Margaret Morbey

Litter Pick
It was Sandra Towell’s birthday which she celebrated by joining in the Village Litter Pick on Sunday 5th June! I hope she went on to spend the day more pleasantly. She was one of 2 Parish councillors who joined 9 other villagers to scour the village for litter and dog poo. It was generally agreed that there was mainly little rubbish, but weeds outside houses could be tidied up by arranging a strimming/weeding party.

Mobile Library
This will next be at The Green in the village on Monday 20th June from 12.20 until 12.45pm.
