Projects that we are engaged in.

Display board

This is being organised in conjunction with the primary school.

The plan is for boards to be mounted on the western facing wall of the village hall. One part will be an illustrated map of the local area made by the school children. Next to it will be an OS map showing visitors where the illustrated features can be found.
