19 attended our Remembrance day service led by The Rev Terry Gilder. The wreath was laid by George Cullingford who read out the names of those in our village who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.

Val Speight is taking orders for notelets illustrating our marvellous scarecrow competition entries. 60 pence each - ring Val on 01728 685430.
Eggs when available and jars of kefir starter grains are for sale in the church porch in aid of the church.
