We have an active and supportive Governing Body. If you would like to know more about the work of the
Governing Body, please get in touch with Mr Clark who will be happy to arrange a meeting with our Chair of

would love to hear from you. Thank you.

we would really like to hear from anybody who is willing to help out this year. Thank you.

WILDLIFE AREA

A massive thank you to Josh Ring and his family for preparing the wildlife area for another year. Roger and
Rosy Key, who you may remember helped set up the wildlife area a few years ago, were also part of the group on
Saturday who prepared the area. It was a huge task and we really appreciate everybody’s hard work.
