It’s all change regarding the play areas on the village green. Recently the large wooden climbing apparatus has been demolished following an adverse safety report but do not despair as help is at hand to provide new play equipment. A steering group of young parents has been hard at work to find replacement play equipment and the installation should start this week. The new equipment will boast a wooden climbing tower, new climbing poles, rope transverse climbing trees, and a great fun tunnel to climb through! The plan can be viewed on the village Facebook/website. The work is due to start this week and should be completed in a couple of weeks, just in time for the school holiday. Please could folk not park on the lane by the Fisherman’s Rest as the lorries and equipment need to have access to the green to build the new play park.

St Andrews is enjoying bringing the word of God to its congregation once again. Last Sunday Rev Barker led the faithful during a Communion service, although there was no communion wine due to the COVID pandemic. The people came up for communion one at a time to avoid compromising social distancing guidelines. The service was much enjoyed by all the participants. The church has another Morning Worship service next week, starting at 11am..
