Annual Village Clear Up/Working Party took place on Saturday morning May28th. Approx. 14 Villagers attended. (On retrospective…maybe faulty memory… head count) among whom were John & Thea Carney plus 2 children “Iggy “(Francis) & Brough who it was very good to welcome the Village; they have moved into Lycaena, Roy & Rita’s previous house (w/es only at the moment until such time as building alterations are completed). It is always an enjoyable social occasional and while much was achieved some “stuff” remains outstanding. i.e gutter clearance and cleaning of area between Vestry & Nave roof. (Regrettably, in the absence of Toby Blythe, no one was young enough/able enough/brave enough to tackle these on a ladder.). Also we ran out of time. We are indebted to Janet & Judith for providing tea/coffee/cakes for the “elevenses” break.
Future Village Events. Queen’s Birthday Celebrations. Sunday June 5th On the Common 1.30 onwards. BYO Picnic etc plus Rugs, chairs. Tables from Village Hall (Pick up & Return).

Village AGM. The annual Village AGM was held in the Village Hall on Thursday 26thMay… at which many current Village matters were discussed; it was attended by 27 Villagers.

The meeting was followed by the customary social get-together and drinks .
