Reduce, reuse, recycle
Yep, we're working hard on this front. Reducing use of cling film is a major focus, but we've already made great headway on food waste in particular. I am pleased with the efforts that the team are making to sort our rubbish correctly.
Our local church
We don't know how long we're going to be looking after the pub, but we hope to be in the village a long time yet. So we've decided that all our charitable enterprises are going to be directed towards the upkeep of our beautiful local church of St. Mary & Edburga.
Of course this doesn't mean that other charities can't be supported and if you would like to hold an event at the pub in aid of some other worthy beneficiary, then we are only too happy to help.
Maggie Woodward has kindly set up a book shelf in the pub for people who are looking for something to read. Suggested donation, 50p per book. There's a nice selection of books on offer so do have a look and leave something in the honesty box.
Even if you're not a believer like me, I hope you see that the church is a vital force in village life, and we neglect it at our peril. Every little helps.
