Anne Holdgate

I would like to say a few words about Anne. She was one of the kindest, hard working and bravest people I have known. She would help anyone in need and could always rustle up others to help as well.

Fireworks and Lanterns 2017

Once again the weather held for a magnificent Firework display attended by over a thousand people at the Playing Field. The Fireworks were stunning and provided by Dynamic Fireworks. The quality and variety of the lanterns was even more impressive this year and thanks go to Mark Miller and Karen Baker for organising the lantern making throughout the week. As usual, the number of volunteers who helped set up, take down and run the event is too many to name individually, but sincere thanks go to all of you who helped – the event would not happen without you.

All the money raised from the Fireworks is pumped back in to the community by the Community Council. We are always looking for helpers for the various events we...
