VILLAGE AT WAR NEEDS YOU
This popular annual event which raises money for a number of worthwhile charities and good causes is organised by a small dedicated group of volunteers who have given their time freely over the last ten years and we are immensely grateful for their hard work and continuing support.
This year, after many years of service, some of our volunteers have decided to retire and we are seeking new helpers to make sure Village at War continues into the future.
Informal planning meetings take place once a month (in the pub) and we welcome new team members. If you'd like to come along and find out what's involved - please e-mail our Chairman for an invitation to meet the friendly team.
