Our Active Retired group are doing trogan work in planning various pastimes for its many members.

Our Community Council are about to hold a public meeting with a view to holding some parish entertainment during the Winter months. In the past we had projects like the Tops of the Parish, and so on. And while that would perhaps not the thinking for now, it gives an idea of what a community can do when challenged. The Public Meeting will be held at a date yet to be decided, so put your Thinking Caps on.
