There will be cakes and mince pies to buy to get you into the festive spirit, a lucky dip for children and a book sale to help provide funds for future events. We would welcome any donations of cakes and books – please deliver them to us on the Green at 10.15 am, Sunday.

We will have a short speech and ceremony at 10.45 am to formally mark the ‘opening’ of the play area.
