Debbie said "This is a very exciting opportunity for the village and I am proud to be part of it, there is huge potential for us to be able to own our premises and develop the shop"
Debbie said " The smiles on the children's faces was testament to how much they enjoyed the activities. I spoke to several of the parents and they told me how much their children enjoyed it and how it gave them a hour of 'me time' which is really important for them. This is a really important project
If you can offer to help please let Debbie know
Debbie said " I was amazed as I handed out leaflets how far people had come to visit the farmers market today, which is great news for our local economy. I was also delighted how many people wanted to help"
"It has been really encouraging the number of people who have been coming out in really horrid weather to attend these meetings" said Debbie. "The Parish Clerk, Christine and the Assistant Clerk Jackie have done an admirable job in arranging these meeting and providing refreshments " she continued

Debbie is pictured here with her team, who developed George Pearce Mansions, a luxury older persons development which would certainly exceed the available budget.
