Village Lunches - Thank you to everyone who has supported these this year by coming, helping to set up, wash up (and the table cloths) and clear up. Generous gifts for the raffle and the persuasive ticket sellers always results in a profit for the day and this enables us to support a number of charities . Donations have been made to the Hospices, Motor Neuron Disease support, Fighting Blood Cancer and Regain (a charity supporting para and tetraplegics ). We have contributed to the replacement seat on the Common in memory of Len (one of our regular lunchers and sadly missed).
