Parish Organisations  -   Committees                                                 


Christmas Lights 
The Christmas Lights Committee organises one of the village's most enjoyable events each year. On the first Saturday in December the committee runs a Christmas Lights event where lights are turned in in the village square, accompanied by carols and other entertainment. Father Christmas arrives to give presents to children. The committee runs fund raising events throughout the year to help make the event free for all comers.

Feast Week committee 

The major summer event in the villages is our annual Feast Week. Feast Week is held over the first full week in July and comprises a huge number of diverse events - often 2 or 3 each day. The Feast Week Committee has the demanding task of organisation and coordinating the event, and running fund raising activities during the year to help pay for it.
