18th August Annual Parish Walk + Church Tower opening.

Annual Parish Walk + Church Tower opening + Litter Pick Sunday 18th August

Just a quick reminder that we will be conducting the annual Parish Walk on Sunday (18th August) at 2pm starting at the village sign. We will also be doing a litter pick along the way, equipment will be provided for anyone wishing to help. Everyone is welcome to join us including dogs on leads, and there will be a variety of routes which you can walk.

St Marys Church Tower will also be open (2-4pm) where you can view the bells, one of the heaviest sets of five in the world, and have a go at chiming them.

Refreshments will be available at The Barn afterwards, and you can catch the end of the cricket! We look forward to seeing you!
