To join contact Heather Bryans on 742207.


BREAKFAST MORNING   The Breakfast Morning  held on the May Bank holiday weekend produced a bumper sum of £170, with several passersby leaving the traffic rush for a while and coming into the hall to enjoy the great breakfast on offer.  The next breakfast morning will be on  Saturday, 30th July.  We look forward to seeing all existing diners as well as those who have not yet sampled the fine food.  All in a good cause as proceeds go towards the village hall extension fund.


VALLEY ART GROUP  We had a lovely morning on June 10th visiting Langford Lakes to draw and paint.  With few other visitors there, it was a perfectly quiet spot to sit and observe the wildlife as well as try and capture the landscape with pencil or watercolour sketches.  If you would like to join us on one of our trips please contact Loraine at or phone 743577 for more information.


BARN DANCE   By popular request we see the return of Tranter's Folly who will lead another Barn Dance in the village hall on Saturday, 9th July at 7.30 pm.  Tickets, to include Supper, are £10 per adult and £5 for children aged 12 years or under.

The village raffle will be drawn at this event.  For more details or to book tickets, contact Heather Bonsey 01722 743577 or Caroline Webb 01722 743896.   People from all surrounding villages most welcome.
