Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow, 15th June

Our W.I ladies had a most enjoyable evening at Cuckoo Farm last week. They were invited by owner Janet to come and sample what the farm has to offer. They met the beautiful horses and bottle fed some dear little lambs. It was a lovely evening and the scenery was stunning with views all over the countryside. At teatime the ladies were shown some rug weaving on a peg loom and some interesting art work. There are lots of courses by appointment, and experience days with the horses are available too. of the horses are used to work on the land, one named Holly is ridden around the farm by the family. A wonderful experience for the ladies who look forward to further visits to the farm. 

Oh Dear! It seems that ther have been thefts from boats on the river again and one red canoe has been stolen! This time of year seems to be popular with boat theives and it is wise to take small vulnerable crafts to a place of safety! Please don’t leave anything on boats such as outboads, oars etc because if not secured, they will go walkabout!                                                                                                           

The mobile library service will call into the village on Wednesday June 28th between 9.30am-1030am. A wonderful opportunity to meet and exchange books of course! It’s a use it or lose it call,the service has been calling here for over 40 years and it would be a shame to see it depleted! 

The Church and Village fete will be held on Saturday July 1st opening at 2pm. All the usual stalls will be there and a childrens entertainer to keep the young ones happy! The fete committee is a small and dedicated band of volunteers and would like to welcome anyone who can help with the putting up of marquees etc on the night before, Friday June 30th, if you can help either contact me or just turn up at about 6pm on the Friday. There are still grand draw tickets available either from me or Jo Smith, or after the weekly service in church.

This Sunday St Andrews will have a Holy Communion service led by Rev Neil Barker, at the usual time of 11am. Refreshments will be available after the service and all are welcome to attend.
