While walking around the Village you may have noticed the shiny benches, clean signage and newly painted phone box, which is all down to the hard work of the community on our annual Spruce up Sunday that took place on 14th July!
Doug Barber, David Thorpe, Steve Holloway and Peni Harman tackled 6 benches, while Dave Jones took on the monumental task of painting the phone box. Gillian Belben got down and dirty with the overflowing compost bins on the Village Green, while members of the Cooke family filled over a bag of rubbish from behind one of the bus shelters. The play area got a real going over with Peter and Julie Whiteman, Nigel and Gill Phillips, Graham Hatch and Katie Jones washing, brushing and tidying. With the new equipment in place it really looks good in time for the school holidays. Back at the Village Hall, Juliet Davies, Sham Payn, Felicity Farnham and Rosemary Shirlaw supplied bacon rolls, tea and coffee and of course – cake!
There are others who weren’t available on the day but litter pick and tidy on a regular basis, so on behalf of the Parish Council a very sincere thank you to you all.
