After persistent rain, a poor weather forecast and a certain conflict with football, the Sports Club decided to postpone the torchlight parade and fireworks. Sadly, excepting a hardened few, the family picnic was a bit of a wash out as well.

Never fear, we still have the fireworks so a little later on in the year we will have a family picnic day, followed by the Torchlight Process and fireworks. So keep an eye open. Notices will be put up around the village and the work will be passed on by social media.
