Daphne’s family have asked that everyone attending should wear something bright and colourful.

Theft in the village

Theft of caravan

A caravan was stolen late on Wednesday night or early Thursday morning in the village. It was parked in one of John Bean’s fields next to Steppingstone Lane and opposite the bus stop on the Avenue.

If you saw any suspicious activity at the time or you have any relevant CCTV images please contact the police by phoning 101.

There have been a couple of thefts of trailers in the village recently; it’s a good time to check the security on outbuildings and vehicles.

Remembrance Day

Service of remembrance – Sunday 10 November

Please meet at the monument in the village on Sunday at 12pm for our short Service of Remembrance to remember the fallen and place our wreath. You are of course also welcome to place your own wreaths / symbols of remembrance alongside this.

Thank you

Sarah & Amanda (Church wardens)
