Village Hall Talks

There was a series of talks being held at the Village Hall in which speakers from the village who have a specialist skill/interest/experience, share their knowledge.

Our thanks to the first 4 speakers:

– Dr Sharon Croskin who began the series with a stimulating and very interesting talk on TRAUMA – the body keeps the score.
– Simon Thompson, dog handler and canine first aid trainer, who gave a talk on DOG FIRST AID, which was very informative and thoroughly enjoyed.
– Dr Peter Williams, who shared the depth and width of his knowledge and experience on  growing plants throughout A YEAR IN A WOODLAND GARDEN. Very impressive slides Peter!
– Buffy Breakwell for the COMMUNITY CHOIR WORKSHOP, which was great fun and which got us all singing confidently as promised!

The next talk, which was to be on the subject of THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY was cancelled due to Covid and will be re-arranged as soon as possible. Watch this space!

If you would like to give a talk or can recommend a topic or speaker please contact Jane Henley on 01759 318411.

Parish Plot


Do visit this little oasis, which is situated on Church Lane near the crossroads with Breckstreet Lane and Mill Lane.  Our thanks to Roger Brook for maintaining the garden until Spring 2020. Peter writes an interesting blog called: nodiggardener.

The plot is owned by the Parish Council for the use of villagers and has gradually been reclaimed since 2005. Once the site of charitable homes for older village residents, the old fruit trees remain but only the foundations of the houses.

It has recently been taken on by Mr and Mrs Taplin and their hard work is already evident. The floor plan of the cottages has been exposed and there is a new entrance using one of the old cottage paths. There is a small area which will interest children.

Please feel free to visit, wander, sit and enjoy.

If you would like to help with the maintenance of this garden, please email:

Phone Box

The telephone box library has proved to be very popular.

There will soon be new shelving, which will help us to keep the books tidy. Once these are in place, the plan is to keep puzzles in the church and the village hall.

VOLUNTEER NEEDED  to help keep the phone box tidy.
