Historical Walk.
Just a reminder to all about the family 4km fun walk tonight , Wednesday August 29th at 7.30pm. This walk will incorporate some historical information at various points on the route. We hope that  families will turn out in large numbers, and maybe might find out something new about our area. An E5 donation per family will be accepted on the night, proceeds of which will go towards the
refurbishment of the Community Hall. Refreshments will be served in the hall afterwards. Participants are asked to wear hi vis jackets if available.

The committee would like to hear from the public, any ideas or activities they would like to be organised in the hall over the winter months, to cater for both adults and children. The Council would be only too happy to provide the hall for any such events or classes which may be required. Please contact any committee member with your suggestions.
