Good news - the Village Hall (Institute) is once more open for business.  Following the event of a tree falling on our roof on Friday 12th October the building has now been made completely safe and secure.  Building repairs do still need to take place but at this point in time the building is back in full use. The Trustees apologise for any inconvenience to the users of this community facility, whilst the tree was removed and urgent repairs undertaken.  

Coffee Mornings are held on most Saturday mornings from 10am to 11.30am, usually helping to raise funds for local charitable causes.  Contact Sheila Swinbank on 01729 850458 if you wish to book a coffee morning next year. The next planned coffee mornings are being run as follows:
