The Village Hall has been equipped with a telephone landline. The system comprises two ‘Big Button’ cordless handsets and a single ‘Big Button’ corded handset, which will continue to function during a powercut. All handsets are located in the kitchen. The phone system is to be used for EMERGENCY CALLS only. Hirers will be charged for any other use during their session. Anyone in difficulties using their mobile, for personal calls, is advised that a stronger signal can be obtained by stepping outside the Hall and moving towards the road. Otherwise, the hall’s high speed broadband can be used for making internet calls. Learn how.
High Speed Broadband
The Playing Field Committee have installed high speed broadband in the Club Room and the Village Hall. Hall users should continue to use their current wifi password whilst Club Room users will need to gain access using the new password displayed there. The new system is running at about 70Mbs (approx 10x the old speed).
To mark her retirement from the Playing Field Committee, after 40 years valued service, at Jenny's Coffee Morning on April 12th, Paddy was presented with an engraved glass bowl, by former Committee Chairman, David Thompson. Pictures right.
An Oak tree has been purchased in memory of Victor Tungate, and was planted by Noreen and Anne along with many of Victor's friends.

The hall and toilets have been redecorated. All are requested to avoid marking the walls.
The flat roof area at the rear of the Club Room has been re-roofed, following a substantial leak over the disabled toilet. The roof will be repainted as part of the Hall decoration programme. Money has been set aside to rethatch the building - Peter Chapman is looking at availability of grants for this project.
Children's Play Area.
A risk assessment of the area is to be conducted on children climbing trees overlooking the Bowls Club.
