Prize giving for Village Plan Survey submissions

The Village Plan survey offered a prize for a meal for two at The Fox and everybody who did the survey was invited to enter a telephone number. The draw took place at The Fox and the winning number was drawn by one of the bar staff.

Myra was the lucky winner and decided to have lunch with a friend.

They had an enjoyable meal.

(The Steering Group for the Village Survey are grateful to Jason Allen, landlord of The Fox, for providing the prize).

A reminder that there will be a presentation of the results of the Village Survey at 7 pm on Thursday 25th January in the Community Centre.
