Breadmaking group - The next monthly meeting is in the village hall on Monday, December 14, when anyone interested is invited to go along at 9am.

The charge is £2 per session, but please contact Di Stephenson on 01507 578695 in advance.

Advent windows - A new venture for the village this year sees something different to celebrate Christmas.

It began with an invitation to residents to help create advent windows to bring the village alive in the lead up to the festive season.

There was a very good response to the challenge and the 24 decorated windows, each with a Christmas carol theme, were soon prepared and are waiting to be opened on each of the respective days during Advent.

The designs will be revealed and lit up until December 27 between the hours of 5pm and 9pm.

A map showing where each window is located can be viewed at the village hall.

In addition to enjoying the Christmas carol-themed decorations, there will be an opportunity to meet and sing carols around the village on Sunday, December 20.

The singing will start at 6.30pm and finish with mulled wine and mince pies in the village hall.
