2. We are pleased to report an incredibly positive response from the village with regard to our fundraising. This has taken the format of sponsoring tiles in the butcher’s shop. 3. Currently we have raised £1000 for the sponsoring of the ‘art’ wall for
3 years and a total of £590 from other businesses and individuals. Our grand total today is £1610.
