Parish Council : Coronavirus general update

I promised occasional short updates consolidating the news.

The volunteer scheme is working well – there have been a few requests for help this week, all easily fielded by the community. Thanks everyone involved, and don’t forget to contact Lisa if you need help or are willing to volunteer.

Whilst church services are cancelled, the Church is open every day for personal prayers.

We took the decision to close the playing field this week. Coronavirus transmission by touch on the playing field equipment could not be prevented. The new equipment installation due this week has been delayed.

As things stand, we intend preparing the Spring newsletter in early-April. A reminder to submit your items before 3 April will be posted in a day or two.

Stay well

Banter and Batter Quiz : The Results

A brilliant evening as always, and a fantastic result..

We’re delighted to announce that our 13th Banter and Batter Quiz Night was yet another resounding success raising £540 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Thank you yet again for supporting us.
