The Friends

There have been no Friends meetings or events since the June Squeaker but we did have the village clean-up on the 25th May. Thank you to all those who took part. We collected 9 large sacks of rubbish. Thank you also to Marjorie Day for hosting the tea and cakes afterwards.

The first event of the new season is the Annual Village Lunch which will have taken place by the time you read this. We are hoping that the first day of September will be the start of a wonderful Indian summer and that we will  be blessed with beautiful weather for the lunch. We have certainly had our share of bad weather for the event over the last three years. So surely, by the law of averages we should be in line for good weather this year.

Although there have been no Friends meetings or events since May a lot of planning has been going on and I list below some details and dates. You will see we have made some changes and additions to the usual programme. We do hope you will support us by coming to as many events as possible.
