  • The Right Royal Birthday Tea at the Village Hall

    Last weekend, the Community Association entertained villagers who were 80 or over for the Queen’s 90th Birthday. The Queen herself wasn’t able to be there, but we decided the closest thing was to crown a resident born in the same month as the Queen. The afternoon tea was beautifully set out, and enjoyed by all.
