Shop Window Displays

Each month a local group uses the window display area in our village shop to tell the village about what they do. We’re now booking the displays for 2021. What could your group tell the village about? Times are strange at the present but this is an opportunity to keep your group in the forefront of village minds even if you have no specific events planned.

Please contact Angela at ajhaddrell@outlook.com if you are interested or leave her a note at the Post Office counter.
