We've lost our lovely cat

Have you seen a grey tabby cat in the Queen street area? Last seen on Friday he is much loved and chipped. Please can you check any garages and outbuildings just in case he has become trapped and we would be so grateful if you could keep an eye out for him. He lives at Grove farmhouse and is much missed by all of us - particularly our 11 and 7 year old. Thank you.

What a great meeting we had in October, and such a happy one, as we welcomed our President Dorothy Readman back after her recent hip replacement.

Dianne gave a short update on County matters and Gill updated members on the Gala Dinner being held in December. Maryann Cartwright has become our newest member. A very warm welcome to her. …

Settle Down

A fellow PC groupie stood up for his two minutes of the Council’s attention and made a plea for greater information on what is happening in the village. He observed that lack of information breeds rumours and what the village needs is hard facts. Actually what the village needs is for the Shop to open SOON.

This set me thinking that maybe we should start a ‘hard facts and rumour’ board where everyone who has heard something could pin their snippet up for others to add to or deny. So…
