The Trishaw Project: ‘Cycling without Age’: You may have seen this wonderful three-wheeled vehicle taking people, two at a time, for a ride! The power assisted cycle, guided by a ‘pilot’ goes on relatively short journeys, mostly on flat ground, giving people, many of whom might find it difficult to walk that far, a very enjoyable experience. The group are looking for new pilots and also new passengers. If you would like to know more about either, please contact Bridget Hamilton on 01273 833606 or 07929 294640.

The glorious statue of Prime Minister Lloyd George dancing the hornpipe was unveiled by Colin Prickett, the longest standing resident of Danny House, amidst great applause.

It’s pretty quiet: in the village in terms of meetings and activities while we enjoy the lovely weather and the summer holidays though the High Street seems busier than usual as people wander about in the sunshine. I do hope that the traders are benefiting. Do let me know if there is anything you’d like included in this column in August.
