|Thanks to Lottery
funding from the Millennium Commission and other local
funders, we have a wonderful Green in the centre of our
village. Here you can walk through the wildlife path, sit
and watch ducks dart about the pond or chase your children
through the orchard.
Celebration Avenue was planted Autumn 2010.
The Green is under the trusteeship of the Parish Council and a working committee work very hard raising money to maintain the Green for the pleasure of everybody in the village. They organise a number of regular fundraising activities throughout the year, which have now become regular events on the village's social calendar.
|The very popular Sunday Cream Teas run from May to end end of August every year. These attract people from outside the village and provide a substantial income. If you are interested in helping out on one or two Sundays, do contact us.|
|September is the month for the
Thompson Bookworm Hunt
Every year residents get competitive and build wonderfully creative displays in their gardens in order to hide the Bookworm and provide good fun for children of all ages.
Harry Hatcher, Mole Catcher is our 2009 display winner. What an imaginative and colourful display.
