Our village Carol Service will take place at 6pm on Sunday 17th December. As has become our custom, we will enjoy a finger buffet and mulled wine afterwards. If you are able to contribute food for the buffet please contact Penny Kirkland on 701993. We are aiming to get a choir together for the service so anyone who would like to be part of that would be most welcome. We will have a practice on the Saturday (time to be confirmed) but if you can't attend that you are still welcome to join the choir on the day. Please call Margaret Tilley on 705555 if you would like to be in the choir or for any other details.

This year it is the turn of Water Stratford to host the Christmas Day service. If anyone would like a lift to Water Stratford on Christmas morning John and Margaret Tilley (705555) have 3 spaces in their car available and will be happy to pick up anyone who would like to go.

Ride & Stride - This raised £385. Thank you to everybody who cycled on Saturday, 9th September and for the generous sponsorship that we received.

Village tidy-up - Thanks to all those who helped with the litter pick in October - your help really makes a difference. Thanks, also, to the Stratton Arms for their kind offer of refreshments afterwards.
