     Profits from brunches at ‘Greenacre’ this year are going to the Church repair fund. Thank you to those who attended in May, this enabled me to pass on to the Church £100, which is brilliant. Our next large project will be the installation of toilet facilities, after a positive meeting with the DAC, plans are now being drawn by the architect. Your support in keeping this listed village building in good maintenance is appreciated enormously.

     Looking forward to welcoming friends old and new
