Please come to the Village Garden Party at 3pm on 28th June!

Everyone living in the village and any guests staying with them are invited to the party in the grounds of Grape House, Coton Road (opposite Burnt Close). There will be a bouncy castle, giant Connect 4 and a glass of wine or tea as well as strawberries and cream for all. The party is free but it would be helpful if you could email margaretbarwise (at) saying how many in your family intend to come so that we can plan the catering.

Representatives from the village’s sports and social clubs, artistic community and the PCC and Parish Council will be there to explain what they do and gather your views. Jethro from Lovely Day (producers of “Grantchester”) will be there to discuss how the filming is going and there’ll be an opportunity to suggest how you feel the money donated to the village should be spent.

Here are some photos from last year’s event:
