The Christmas Card Exchange will take place in St. Andrew’s church on Saturday 9th December from 10am to 12 noon. Bring along your village addressed Christmas cards and leave them on the alphabetically marked out pews for others to collect when they visit. Those not collected will be delivered to their addresses. If you prefer a greener option than writing individual cards, this year the church is introducing one tree where you can peg up your seasonal greeting to the whole village. Coffee and cakes will be provided and a donation to the church will be greatly appreciated. A very sociable occasion – do come.
