The annual Autumn Social in the Village Hall was a huge success.  The village hall was full, with about 90 people attending.  The total amount raised, largely from the bar and the raffle, was £196 and this has enabled donations to be made to the Village Hall, the WI, St Mary's Church Fabric Fund and the Playgroup.
