Thank you to everyone for their contribution in helping to maintain our village and making it a wonderful place in which to live. Special mention was made of our Churchyard and it’s sensitive rural management, the well equipped and well utilised play area, our notable village Beacon, the village hall and the tidiness of the area, our village pub , bus shelters, allotment gardens, notice boards and war memorial.
