Village Map Updated

The Village Map which hangs outside the Village Hall has been updated.  The 1.18 mtr x 0.84 mtr laminated map details street and property names to aid visitors and delivery companies, and has an index with grid references.

The map was last updated in 2020.  The main amendment this time is the addition of Wessex Way.  Thanks to all those residents who suggested other changes.

You can download a soft copy of the map here:
