Community Speed Watch
The volunteers from the local Speed Watch team have been active in the village at least once in the week, and sometimes twice. Vehicles are still driving too fast through the village, and many offenders are local residents as well as some are from surrounding villages. Please note the speed restrictions apply to all!
Help the team to help you keep the village as safe as can be from traffic hazards by slowing down and complying with the legal limits that are clearly signposted.
The Post office operates in the Village Hall on Wednesdays from 10:00am to 12:30pm. Services offered include Banking, Cash Deposits, Cash Withdrawals, Bill Payments plus lots more.

On Sunday 7th May, a special service will take place for the Coronation of King Charles 111 and Camilla Queen Consort’ commencing at 9:30am. Everybody welcome.
