There are lots of fundraising events coming up, including a race night on 25th June in village hall, live music in the Lewis Arms on 29th June and The Dandos are playing again on 1st July.

If you have any ideas for fundraising events, we’d love to hear about them. You can get in touch on Twitter, Facebook or via the contact form.
