Shrimp and Ken kindly allowed the following peeps into their cosy Christmas house decorations:


Yes, the cat is real!



This was the twentieth evening of the 2019 Advent Window celebrations. At each event I have been struck by just how many new families we have in the village. Ken and Shrimp have been to every one of events, as is always the case. We are all indebted to their tireless work on behalf of the village, at the Church, the Shop and other community events such as the Harvest Supper. I therefore thought it appropriate to put in this link to an entry on this website featuring a surprise party to honour Shrimp’s long service as Churchwarden:
