The 9 September marked another milestone in the remarkable history of our village and, as always, our community came out in support and recognition of what makes this a very special place in which to live.

It cannot have escaped your attention that Wednesday marked the occasion when Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II became the longest serving British monarch.

To coincide with this event and as a lasting legacy, our War Horse, War Memorial, Flagpole and Flag are now bathed in floodlight during the hours of darkness.

The 'Switch On' was undertaken in a short commemorative ceremony at 9pm on 9 September, during which time Chairman of the Parish Council, Cllr Neil Matthews, paid tribute to the particular generosity of two of our local residents who had made a significant contribution to the funding of this initiative.

He also thanked the Barbour family for their financial support and he particularly thanked Cllrs Doug Haynes and Norman Sharp for their involvement in this project.

The floodlighting of this area will now provide a pivotal point of reflection and commemoration within the village.

The Chairman of the Parish Council would like to thank all members of the community who turned out for the illumination event.

Thanks also to Sheila and Graham for serving warm coffee after the event and to Iain for his remarkable photographic skills.
