things to do
The Village Calendar 2021 – Create your entry for next year’s village calendar competition! This may be photography, a painting or a sketch. We want to make next year’s calendar all about its community. The more homemade the better!
For those less fortunate – If you knit or Crotchet … make a pair of gloves, scarf, hat, items that we can then donate to charity / send to the less fortunate / send to homeless charities
Annual Village Horticultural Show (1st August) – Thinking positively about the next 4 months, planning and producing one’s entries for the horticultural show and the best kept garden element of the show are things that could occupy a significant amount of time.
Tasty Treats – Bake a cake and send your pictures to the parish response email address or upload them onto the Facebook Group so that we can share all the activities going on.  
How I view my village – How about creating a 5 inch square from material, wool, or whatever fabric takes your fancy when this is all over, we’ll stitch them altogether and make a patchwork collage for the village hall
Volunteers – We have volunteers eager to talk to those who are lonely, be this a phone call or on your front porch (social distancing taken into consideration) so please contact the parish helpline if you would like someone to talk to just for a chat!
Keep in Touch – Write a letter to each other, and deliver through the letter box, keep your distance, and wash your hands after opening letters!!!  
Horticultural Show – Photography Section The topics for the photographic section are “Local Wildlife” and “Village Theme” and obviously photographs can be taken in one’s own garden or whilst taking exercise around the village, woodland, heath or wherever.

We would like to hold an exhibition after this is all over to showcase what we have been getting up to during isolation as a village.

For more information on this please contact the Parish Helpline and we will get into contact with you on this matter.

We would love more ideas for how to keep ourselves entertained through this time of isolation as well as see how you have been keeping yourselves busy! Please send pictures and messages to the Parish Helpline as we would love to document this and share ideas around!
