Grateful thanks to all who supplied goods and services or gave their time towards the refurbished Village Hall.


During the Covid pandemic lockdown period, we have been grateful to receive grants totalling £27,669 for the Village Hall from Rugby Borough Council. These grants were available to small businesses and village halls across the country.
