We have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm being shown for the Information and Heritage Centre idea.
We have received 120 responses in the first four days. If you have not completed it yet please give us two minutes now 119 people think it is a great idea! More importantly 50 people have said they would be friends and supporters, 35 would volunteer to give time to manning such a centre or helping in some way to set it up. The consensus view is that such a centre would need to be very close to the heart of the village. The aspect of having good access to local event information came up as almost as important as the heritage side. A number of people emphasised how useful this could be to local schools as a resource.
We have actuallystarted to receive some donated items and have plenty more in the pipeline. With this in mind you will see we now have an on-line collection page on the webiste Please help us add to it.
