Thanks to all who organised and attended the fete last Saturday afternoon, and the charity evening on the green afterwards. The evening raised approximately £300 which will be sent to HELP FOR HEROES. Thanks too to the band SOULJAZ who were excellent. Apparently it was the first time they had played on the back of lorry. And don’t forget they will be appearing at the Villager again on Thursday 1 August – see GIGS page for more details.
