The Villager Magazine – August 2015

This month’s edition is largely filled with all things Village Fayre! What a great day it was, with excellent weather too. A big thank you to the Camera Club for all the brilliant photos of the day and to Jim Buckley for compiling them together into three amazing spreads.

Aside from the Fayre we have reports from a rainy Jazz on the Green, activities in the Care Centre and an introduction from our new Volunteer Coordinator Sue Lewin.

We also have our second Community Services page and a number of exciting events to look forward to now the Fayre is over for another year.

Happy reading!
