The Village Hall is now fully open and looking forward to seeing everyone again very soon. We will however be continuing to encourage all our visitors to stay safe and healthy by keeping the hall ventilated, using the hand sanitizers provided, practising social distancing and the use of masks when appropriate.


What a great day we all had! We had nearly 100 visitors to the Village Hall in the course of five hours and the Village Hall committee, Parish Council and members of our user groups met residents old and new and some from up and down the valley and answered lots of questions. The church looked stupendous decked out in autumn colours ready for Harvest Festival on Sunday, the Charlton Inn did us proud by offering holders of a Trail Map a free pint and the Parish Centre sold books, cakes and cards, as well as lots of cups of tea, to visitors. A brilliant way to show off the village!! Thanks for coming!


Local residents, Jo and Mick Berry, have joined the management team at the Village Hall and are taking on the roles of Booking Secretary and Caretaker respectively during September. We are delighted to have Jo and Mick on board.
