Fly-Tipping

Fly-tipping is once again becoming something of an issue, particularly in the outlying parts of the village.  Could residents please keep an eye out for any activity and report any details to Su Allport (here).  Also, if anyone is using contractors to take waste away, it’s worth noting that they must have a license to do so – please check .

Social Club AGM

Friday 14th July 8pm Village Hall

All welcome! Come and find out what’s brewing in the village.  A chance to contribute to community life, too.  Bar open!

Garage Sale & BBQ

Saturday 15th July  – throughout  the village – 12 to 4pm.   with BBQ early evening.

A leaflet is in preparation to go in the magazines for people to register so we have an idea of who will do a sale and also who will  support a BBQ at 4pm or thereabouts.  We hope to get a good response obviously, but especially for the BBQ  as there is probably not going to be a village event as in previous years. Watch out for the leaflet – coming soon to a letter-box near you!

Looking further ahead:
