A HUGE thanks to Dale, Gary, Jake and Frank who have already been hard at work in the Churchyard and on the Hall Green. We are extraordinarily lucky to have such a brilliant mowing team and do not want to lose them; they may be a bit shorthanded in high summer so if anyone can spare the odd hour to assist please contact Mary on 770242. Mowers and fuel provided.
DOG WALKERS – PLEASE do not allow your dog to foul these and other public areas in the village as this is a health hazard to playing children, disrespectful to grieving families and can wreck the machines.
