VILLAGE CALENDAR 2018
This year calendar contained many lovely photographs of our village, provided by villagers, and the Friends committee would like to thank everyone who submitted their photos.
The calendars were available for purchase in the Village Shop, but we were unaware that another local calendar was to be on sale at the same time, and sadly the sales were not as good as we had hoped.
We would like to thank Rosemary Brett-Green for all her time and effort in collating the calendar and despite various printing challenges along the way, getting it printed and ready on time.
