"regrettably, due to circumstances beyond our control the above branch will close temporarily at 17:30 on Monday 23 December 2013"
says Colin Pound, Field Change Advisor for Post Office Limited. He goes on to say,
"We're now starting a 6 week public consultation and would like you to tell us what you think about the suitability of the proposed new location of the service. Before we finalise our plans, we would really like to hear your views on this proposal particularly on the following areas:
  • How suitable you think the new location and premises are?
  • Do you have any comments on the proposed days and opening hours?
  • How easy is it to get there?
  • Are the new premises easy for you to get into and is the inside easily accessible?
  • Do you have any concerns about the new location?
  • If so, do you have any suggestions that could help us make it better for you?
  • Are there any local community issues which you think could be affected by the proposed move?
  • Is there anything you particularly like about the proposed change?
If you have any comments or questions, please email or write to me via our Communication and Consultation team"
The consultation ends on 7th February 2014 and the proposed month of opening the new Post Office is March 2014.

Village Hall Christmas Fayre success

The Village Hall & Church Xmas Fayre raised around £1000 (one thousand) on Saturday for the Church, the Hall and other local charities. We would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who came and supported the event. The people who were there, either organising, selling or buying all appeared to have a lot of fun and many people were seen 'catching up' with each other.

Happy Christmas,

Jane Sloan (Chair) and the Trustees.
