Monday 28 November – Royal British Legion AGM, Thomas Field Hall, 5.30pm
Thursday 1 December to Saturday 24 December – Travelling Crib
It’s that time of year again where the Travelling Crib is preparing to make its way round the village. For those who are new to the process, this is a lovely village tradition where the figures of Mary, Joseph, the angel and a donkey make their way around the village visiting a different home every night between 1st and 24th December. Once we have established who is hosting on which night, you will need to make contact with the people next to you on the list to arrange personal handovers.
Please contact Catriona Angel if you’d like to be involved in this festive tradition. Email: email@example.com
