This website provides news, events and information for the Village, our twelfth-century Parish Church and a link to the Primary School.

We also have additional information on the village past and present along with huge amounts of day-to-day information such as useful contacts and links to other information sites, including Tide Tables, Weather Forecasts, the I.W. Council, Bus Timetables, Childline, Crime Map, School Term Dates and many other consumer-related facilities.
