Our theme this year is “Christmas Round the World”.
Once again we are inviting village organisations and families to take part in this years Christmas Fair (Sat. 8th Dec.) by decorating a window sill in St. Peter’s Church. As has become a tradition, visitors to the fair will be able to vote for the window they like best.
We expect that groups/families will tend to choose to illustrate a particular country’s customs.
(But artistic license is allowed.)
If your organisation or family would like to take part please let Pat Bevan know no later than 15th October so that your window can be allocated in plenty of time for your planning. The Hollies
Displays will need to be in place by Friday 7th December (earlier if at all possible) and remain throughout the Christmas period up to, and including Sunday 6th January (Epiphany/Twelfth Night).
We look forward to a bumper crop of displays again this year.
We have some very artistic residents: this is their chance to show their skills.
Please feel free to contact the Group Officers, as follows:
Chair – Dave Freak
Secretary – Keith Cooper
Treasurer – Louise Reeve

We will be working with local landowners to identify small areas of land that can be used to plant trees or hedges. Occasional requests will go out to members, seeking volunteers to survey areas of land to assess the age and health of trees and to identify possible planting areas, as well as to take part in planting trees and hedges. These activities will normally be scheduled to last for no more than three hours.
The Tree Group has insurance to cover members carrying out these activities.

COVID Policy (Feb.2022)
Unfortunately Covid-19 has not gone away, and we still want everyone to feel safe whilst being able to enjoy the film.
We use ‘cabaret-style’ seating around suitably spaced tables.
We recommend that you continue to wear a face covering when moving around the village hall, though this may be removed whilst you are seated.
It would also be appreciated if you could complete an antigen (lateral flow) test before attending. (We are more than happy to refund your ticket should your test unfortunately prove positive.)
