The next bin collection will be just a day later than usual on Thursday December 28 when the recycling bins will be collected. Next week, it will be back to the usual Wednesday collecting day on January 3.

Carol Singing round the village  £660 has been raised this Christmas from the carol singers who managed to get round to most of the village on 2 nights and a collection at the Lighting of The Tree evening.  This will be divided between the charities for Cystic Fibrosis and Debra. Well done to the carol singers and everyone who donated.

Happy Christmas  to everyone and all the very best for 2018.
