Dog Walk – Good Friday

No need to bring your own dog.


The benches from the Village/Parish/Church/Millennium Garden/Meadow/Green have been refurbished by Tim and Dan. After a few finishing touches they can be reinstalled. Anyone wishing to help should contact Tim/Dan.


Sam has resigned from the committee. I’m sure we would all like to thank her for all her work and inspiration over the past year and hope she will continue to join our activities.
