New Village Sign

15 February 2019

You may be wondering where the new Village Sign project is up to. Well, it is good news. The actual sign is safely stored away and it looks stunning (we can’t wait to show it off). The metal surround is now in the process of being made, along with decorative scrolls and the whole frame will then be treated. It is hoped that the sign will be erected sometime in the late spring but we are also dependent on other third parties to carryout work so we can’t be precise.

Parking on the Knoll

31 January 2019

The knoll is the small triangle of land at the bottom of School Road, where it meets The Street. This used to be the centre of the village with shops, a pub and the church. Please can we very politely ask that drivers do not park on this grass. The land is very soft and wheel markings then make the cutting of the grass much more difficult. Thank you.
