Good news to report!
The village raised the excellent sum of £486.16 for Children in Need, made up of £407 from the Coffee Morning and Soup & Rolls on Friday 3rd November, plus £79.16 from the coin collection (also an assortment of half-p coins, foreign look-alike coins, and one old penny - I'd forgotten how huge they were!)
A great effort by the village and by the event organisers, for which many thanks.
