THE VILLAGE PARTNERSHIP

We are the elected representatives of the village groups. Because we have a legal constitution, bank accounts and financial records we are able to help groups apply for grants and we can then provide financial services for our members.

We meet around 10 times a year and more often when something important is going to happen! We run this website, publish the Village News, run the annual Village Show, run the monthly craft and hobby market and look after some of the village flower displays.

 

WHAT THE VILLAGE PARTNERSHIP DOES

15 people meeting once a month for a cup of tea and a biscuit...(!)

THE MONTHLY CRAFT FAIR

The craft fair is held on the last Saturday of each month in the Jubilee Hall from 10am to 12 noon. With a wide range of cards, gifts, plants, toys and all sorts of nice things! The tea, coffee and cakes are run by a different group each month with the Brownies being particularly appreciated for their baking!

This year Saturday September 15th!

THE ANNUAL VILLAGE SHOW

The Village Show is held in September. It features over 40 classes with crafts, photography and baking being the most popular. The pictures give a flavour!
