Take time to relax and enjoy the beautiful AONB surroundings.
On the 10th June 2016 at 7pm in the Parish Hall there is a meeting to discuss this years Village Day that is booked to take place at The Paddock of Mewstone on 6th August 2016.
Some time ago residents were asked if they would be willing to help out on the day as this is a village event designed to be attractive to residents and visitors alike.
Its success is down to the planning and organisation of the various events throughout the afternoon together with the help and support of as many people in the parish as possible.
If you are one of those who has volunteered to help, please be at the meeting on 10th June as this is where and when it all starts.
Thanks to you all for your support - Let's make it another great Village Day in 2016.
