It's time to give the Village Hall a makeover. After ten years of use there are lots of things that really need to be repaired or improved, ready for the next ten years of service to our village community.
We need volunteers!
Please take a look at what's already been achieved, and what still needs to be done. If there's something you'd be willing to take on or help with, or if you have a special skill or knowledge that we could use, please let us know. We'd love to hear from you. Contact Val at and join the team.
