Coronavirus Covid-19 Update:
Our meetings at the Village Hall might look a little different to those held in the past.
The Village Hall Committee have their own requirements and there will be common courtesies to keep everyone as safe as possible. Social distancing and good ventilation will be encouraged and you may be asked to keep face masks on when moving around the hall. We are hoping to offer refreshments as near to normal as possible.

Come along to any individual meeting for £2 on the door or why not join as a member at £8 for the whole season- see our Contacts Page
