With effect from 1st November we will operate our Winter Opening Hours. From Monday to Saturday we will open 9am – 6pm and on Sundays we will open from 12 noon to 4pm.

The pub quiz at The Sir William continues every Sunday, please support this great village activity as it raises funds to support the shop and is a fun way to meet up with friends and family. Plus, you can win money – there is a growing pot of cash waiting to be won! A HUGE thank you to Terry and Helen for the support that they provide to us. We very much appreciate everything that they are doing to support us and make The Sir William a great village place to visit.

Our small school has big ambitions to install solar panels with the aim of reducing their carbon footprint, saving money, protecting their surroundings and educating the children about how they can make a difference. Please help them by sponsoring a tile for £5. Click here to read more & help them reach their target of raising £12k.

There is a terrific fundraising event on Thursday 30th October at The Sir William with the aim of securing a defibrillator for the village and setting up a group of village responders trained in using the equipment. Tickets for the three course dinner and talk are £25 and available from Sir William or the Shop. Local paramedic, Martin Gorman, has looked after some of you personally! Hear him and his colleagues tell you a little bit about responding to emergencies in our rural setting and how having this equipment in our village has the potential to save lives.

PS – A defibrillator is a piece of equipment that helps to restore natural rhythm of the heart when a person is experiencing cardiac arrest/heart attack.

We’re still on the look out for lots of people to join our thriving team to keep the Shop project going! New shop volunteers and new committee members will be warmly welcomed so please drop us a line if you are interested. It gives you a great deal of pride and a sense of achievement to be involved in a project like this and anyone can get involved whatever your age, skills, availability – we’d love it if you’d come and join in.

Thanks, once again, for your continued support!
