Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow – 22nd April

There is just time to remind everyone that the Annual Meeting of the Parish Council will take place on Monday May 9th at 7.30 pm in the village hall. All Parish councils have by law to hold an annual meeting, the purpose of which is to give the electorate a chance to come and enquire about the councils performance over the last twelve months. All village organisations are invited to present a report to explain what their particular organisation has achieved over the last year. This is a very important yearly event as it gives everyone a chance to have their say and express their views. Further details are available from Peter Javes on 55283.

The Project Group came to talk to the W.I last week and what an interesting and entertaining evening the ladies enjoyed!

Some of the ladies were able to fill in some of the gaps of knowledge that existed in identifying some of the people in the older photos. Everyone enjoyed the evening and Ros and Delia received a well deserved round of applause. The Project Group’s next event will be on Friday 6th May in the hall at 7.0 pm.
