Light Up Christmas
Christmas Tree Lights switch-on
Friday 4th December
Sadly, due to Covid, the traditional Christmas Lights ceremony outside the shop cannot be held.
BUT – Christmas is NOT cancelled
Many of us create home Christmas displays visible from the street, in windows, front gardens, hedges and greens.
If we switch on together at 6.30 pm on 4 December, then we can all walk round the village, admire the displays and wish friends and neighbours a Merry Christmas
Please maintain social distancing and covid precautions – don’t let the Virus spoil your New Year!
A good team effort has produced a temporary library in the Bus Shelter.
Especial thanks to Angela Sellars for sorting the books and stocking the shelves.
Please use the facility but please do bear in mind that it should not become a dump for books that should really be recycled!
Its success will depend upon us all playing our part and respecting the very simple instructions displayed on site.
We hope to make it a permanent feature. The only stipulation from Broadacres, who own the Bus Shelter, is that we will have to dismantle it if the Bus Service is restored. As it is over 30 years since we had the last bus I think it will be safe.
There is a wide cross section, including children’s books and puzzles etc, on offer.
