Over £1000 was raised by the Friends of St Nicholas which we’re told will help pay for the new front door to the church!

Just 16 days to go of crowdfunding
It is now over a year since Mike Waples passed away. He was a well known local character, always happy and liked by everyone who knew him.
He was also a keen walker and with the local group (The RAMS), he and they walked hundreds of miles together. Partly for this reason it has been decided to create a village walk in his memory. Set on a steel lecturn, there will be a map, of the local area with the route marked out for anyone to follow. The walk will be 1-2 miles long. Subject to permission being granted from the Parish Council, the lecturn will be placed on the Nob. There may also be a commemorative tree planted alongside.
If anyone who knew him would like to contribute to the cost, it would be very gratefully received. There is also a jar on the bar in The Unicorn should you wish to donate by more conventional means.
