The Village

We are very lucky to have a group of excellent facilities and businesses at the centre of our little village, making it a bustling community with many hubs in which local people can meet and thrive.

The village has a strong volunteering tradition, which shows off the many talents of its inhabitants, old and new, allowing people to get to know each other, make friends for life and plan new adventures and escapades together! The Festival was born of this village ethos and long may it last.
