1940s Tea Party

Saturday, 11 November 2023

What a truly amazing afternoon. Our lovely community came together at the Village Hall for a 1940s tea party. A sing along led by Kathryn, ably assisted by Bernard, proved to be a resounding success followed by sandwiches, cakes and tea. Finally, Jackie ran a wonderful bingo. So intense that, at times, you could hear a pin drop. Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers. Those who baked, made sandwiches and tea, served and cleared up, as well as those who sold raffle tickets.

Our garden is flourishing

Saturday, 14 October 2023

Last week, volunteers planted many bulbs and scattered seeds, giving the promise of a beautiful spring time. Feeders for our feathered friends have also been put up and we hope to welcome many birds over the winter. Thank you to all those who take the time to help.

We will always be very grateful to the National Lottery Heritage Fund for supporting our project and enabling us to create a place of peace and serenity for visitors to enjoy.
