One of the attractions at the Summer fete this year will be the inclusion of a beer tent, run by our very own village brewery, Holcot Hop-Craft.

They will be offering three different beers, to suit most palates. At just £3 per pint, you will enjoy not only sampling their excellent brew, but support this worthy event at the same time.

Church : Register of gravestones

A family history page has been added to the church website.

I includes a link to an index of all those known to be recorded on gravestones in the churchyard. In due course, the intention is to include images of all the gravestones but Melvyn wanted to give those who tend gravestones the opportunity to request that photos are not included.

Contact Melvyn Hunter at
