A big thank you to all within the village who very generously donated food/clothing etc, for our recent Harvest Festival service held in the Church. Your fantastic response was very much appreciated and all donations have been sent to the Hope Centre in Northampton, (thanks to Vanessa for your help) – for which they were very grateful.



Advance notice – The traditional Annual Carol Service, will be held on Saturday 14th December starting at 4pm.

As is the normal case, Mulled Wine and Mince pies will be served following the service. Do come along, enjoy the service and catch up with friends/ neighbours.



A big thank you to those who came to listen to Whalebone in the Village Hall.

It was an evening of both toe tapping and lyrical music. Traditional folk melodies given Whalebones unique interpretation, haunting original tunes and performances of well-known rock music from Dire Straits, Thin Lizzy, Simon and Garfunkel and the Beatles. A real eclectic mix and much enjoyed by those who came.

By coming to these evenings you not only have a great time but you help support and maintain the Village Hall.

Other savoury packets: Charles Close, Old (entrance to playing fields) 8am-10pm every day
