Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow, 23rd February

Good news! Our Broadband in the village is being updated to  fibre which should lead to  a faster and more efficient service for all of us. I’m sure there is a huge sigh of relief for future communications in our community. There will be some disruption as vital works in connection with the broadband update take place, i.e cones by the pub, and a lot of digging going on but it will be well worth it in the end!

St Andrews will be continuing the Lent course on Tuesday evening in church at 7.30pm-8.30pm.

There will be another opportunity to sample the course in Modbury on Thursday afternoons from 2.30pm- 3.30pm.Places are limited so please contact       Rev Matthew on to book a place.

Our shop has lots of good books if you fancy a good read during the cold wet weather we have been experiencing of late.
