Walking round the village it’s great to see some signs of spring beginning to show, with snowdrops being very much in evidence and in some warmer spots primroses are already showing their faces. The Cricket club dinner is due to take place on February 7th and the exciting news is that they have secured a guest speaker for this important village evening. Mr Tony Rogers, originally from Kingsbridge, has long standing connections in the world of cricket with Worcestershire County, Devon Dumplings and the late Basil D’Olivera. An exciting mix of potential cricketing stories to unfold, and a really interesting evening in store. More details from Richard Bain or the Fisherman’s Rest.
A local cat has gone missing from her home. She is a small brown/black tortoiseshell and she lives at the shop end of the village. She is quite nervous and probably won’t come to strangers, but if you spot her please report it to the contact on the village Facebook page or in the village shop. Please check sheds and outbuildings in case she has got shut in somewhere.
The table tennis evenings are now well under way after the festive season break. The hall is open every Wednesday evening from 7-9 pm and all age groups are welcome. All equipment is provided and its only £1.50 per session, good value and an ideal way to shed those Christmas extra pounds!
