Police Contact Advice:

Telephone 999 in an emergency where there is a danger to life or a crime is in progress.
Telephone 101 for non-emergencies where police attendance is required, to report a crime or to report any other incidents. Calls to 101 have a fixed cost of 15p.



We should like to express our sincere thanks to Councillor Bob Fraser, Councillor Simon Gaskin and Councillor Duncan Goodfellow for funding the village hall £500 each towards cavity wall insulation.

We should also like to acknowledge a grant of £1,000 from Western Power Distribution Community Chest which has helped fund the installation of uVPC doors to the kitchen and one of the main double door exits.

These energy efficient measures will hopefully make the hall more comfortable for users and reduce our carbon footprint.
