 Michael Layzell, stalwart supporter of our community, sadly passed away on Tuesday 28 August 2018.

Michael was a key member of the team that runs the village hall and had made a huge contribution to all the events that have been held in the village for many years.   His involvement has been as both an organiser and as a volunteer.   He will be remembered by everyone who has been active in village activities as someone whose commitment to the local community was an example to us all.

Michael's son Stuart Layzell has created a Just Giving page to raise money for Leukaemia UK in Michael's memory.  Please give generously to help fund research this insidious disease.
