Coronation Tea Party in the Village Hall

Thank you to everyone who came along to the Coronation Tea Party yesterday. We hope you had a super time! Special thanks to the Open Gardens Group for their very generous sponsorship and for everyone who contributed food - we ate like royalty!

Defibrillator Training

A reminder that the defibrillator training will be taking place on Monday 22nd May in the village hall at 7pm. If you would like to come along please let Ali Payne ( know.

St Mary's Church

We are advertising for a part time vicar to help our Rector Beth, interviews will be held in April. We hope to upgrade the electric organ which was bought when the roof was repaired. A kind donation of £500 has been given to kick start a fundraising campaign.

With only one active bell ringer in the tower, ringing has been limited to tolling on occasions like the Queen's Jubilee and funerals. One exception was a visit by the Marlborough Branch of the Salisbury Diocesan Guild of Ringers, when we had 16 ringers in the tower and had an excellent evening of ringing. Unfortunately there may be some issues with the bells - an inspection is long overdue.
