A huge thankyou to all those who came along to support our recent Christmas Fair. The Village Hall was buzzing with people who enjoyed the variety of stalls and refreshments on offer. A particular thank you to all those of our supporters who knitted, sewed, crafted, baked, made preserves, provided tombola prizes and sorted out redundant jigsaws. Also thanks go to all those who gave of their time to help with stalls and refreshments on the day.

We were once again blessed with the loyal support of so many and we enjoyed a very rewarding time. The magnificent sum of £1,614.96 was raised. Well done to everyone, we couldn’t do it without the continuing support and encouragement from our village and the wider community.

Another thank you goes to all those who when shopping at John Lewis at the Victoria Centre store, supported the John Lewis Community Matters between August and October. The amount generated for our charity was £1000.00, a very worthwhile amount which will be designated for Nottingham Research.

The committee would like to wish you all a Happy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year and look forward to seeing you at our events in 2018!
