A Message From Alex Rose

I have a few items, free to a good home, for collection from Number 15, The Street. I’d be hugely grateful if you could advertise them in the village newsletter to see if anyone wants them.

  1. Sofabed, cream/beige leather, folds down to a single bed.
  2. 2 x matching lampshades, off-white/natural colour, 30cm diameter.

A Message From Annemarie Tierney

As you know, Patrick has a great deal of material about the history of our village.

Caroline Baker has found a place in the village hall where he can store items of the “village archive”.

We have a file of the newsletters that used to be delivered but it is incomplete.

I wonder if anyone has kept them and would be prepared to donate to the file.

Also, does anyone have  material which would be suitable for the store?

Thank you ,



Julie Nicholson has a tray – left behind by someone. Please claim it!

Laetitia Hardie 

Many of you will have fond memories of Laetitia. She was 105 on 21st August and still going strong!

Crafts Alive

Any more news let me know,
