Lest We Forget

The Parish Council in association with the Scarecrow Festival and St Mary’s Church has placed a new bench in St Mary’s graveyard.  The bench commemorates all those who died during the World Wars and is a fitting memorial to their sacrifice.

The bench was paid for by the Scarecrow Committee and the permissions from the Church Authorities was obtained by St Mary’s Church. The ordering and placing was undertaken by members of the Parish Council.

The bench will be dedicated this Sunday after the Remembrance Service.

Blocked Byway/Footpath

Please  be aware that the footpath behind the old mushroom farm has been blocked off because of the unstable wall next to it. The wall will be demolished today and tomorrow and the byway should reopen Wednesday morning.
