LAST POST: Not the last post in the village, but sadly the last post for former village postman Jim Bradley. Jim will be fondly remembered in the village firstly as relief postman the village for over four years and went on to be our regular mailman for a further six years until a degenerative illness forced this popular public servant into early retirement. Possibilities of a desk job were considered, but alas to no avail as health conditions deteriorated. Fellow postal worker and colleague Sharon Holland from the village is organising a collection for Jim and is hoping villagers will offer support for a well respected character that served the village well for many years, fair weather or foul. If you wish to show your appreciation for Jim please contact Sharon in the village for further information.
