We would very much welcome some volunteers to help with decoration and logistics of the BBQ & Picnic, so if anyone is willing to help, please let me know. We will also need help serving teas & coffees in the Pavilion for the Picnic.
Crafty Lasty is very kindly helping to make jubilee decorations for the green, but if anyone would like to assist, your help would be very welcome. It would be lovely to see some village made bunting and decorations on the green & the rec & we hope everyone will get involved, big & small.
If anyone is willing to make some jubilee cakes for the Pavilion, these too would be very much appreciated. All planned events are free and no profits will be made, so cake donations for all to share would be very much welcomed.

If you would like to help in any way, please contact Julie Durrant on 07505 363249
Thank you in anticipation and we very much look forward to seeing you all.
