22nd May 2022

Hello Everyone

The bunting is going up around the villages as attention turns to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Flags are flying in the breeze high up on lamp posts with plans and preparations for street parties and village events taking form.  What a pleasant change this brings after so many months of restrictions, and what a joy it was last week to watch the Queen relaxed and smiling as she enjoyed the first big event at Windsor Horse show with such a wonderful display of skill and disciplined delivery with representatives from across the world taking part.

We will give more information next week about church and village plans to celebrate, but for now, we offer you information about this week's services and events:
