New Garden Bed

Thank you to Churchwarden Johnson Xu who has worked hard extending the garden bed adjacent to the driveway so as to cover the roots of the tree which had become exposed due to the driveway run-off at that point. Recently there was a mishap. A person tripped on the roots and an ambulance was required. Hopefully this will conceal the problem.


This Sunday at 11.30am. Please encourage neighbour, friends and family with kids to attend.


Parish Fundraising Suggestions

For those parishioners who attended the meeting on Saturday 28 January, Parish Council have considered all the suggestions made and some have already been actioned. A list of suggestions, and their current thinking bout them is on the noticeboard and can be downloaded at this link.
