NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2016 UPDATE

The target date for our Lottery bid is the first of December and we are including summaries of the various aspects of our “Heritage Package” in this. One strand of this will be the development of a programme of re-enactments of the history of the area.

We have been looking at the work needed to install lighting in the belfry and have the approval to go ahead with this.

A huge thank you to everyone for their support during 2016 with donations, contributions to our collection boxes and help and support at our events. Our fund plus pledges has now reached over £26,900 with our collection boxes and events raising over £4,800 so far this year. We’ve had a Quiz Night, Mardling evening, Village Fete and Beetle Drive and our Christmas Bingo evening on Saturday 3rd December is still to come. Please do come and join us.

Watch out for several fund-raising events being planned for 2017.
