June 2nd/3rd 2012 - JUBILEE WEEKEND
We were pleased to lend a hand in decorating the village hall for the Saturday dance and the Sunday party. Thank you to all our ladies who provided yummy cakes for the children's tea. It was good to be part of a great village occasion.

June 14th 2012 - GARDEN PARTY
Well again the weather had the upper hand, so we turned the village hall into a garden for the evening. Bunting, drapes, parasols, flowers and even a birdbath, all came together to do just that. Scrumptious food, plenty of drink and good company made it a lovely occasion.
