“The Feast had a very specific item to fundraise for this year - a defibrillator for the village. A massive £1,700 was raised which will enable the Feast Committee to proceed and purchase the life-saving piece of equipment.

“The Feast Committee passed their thanks to all those who supported the Feast in any way including many local businesses who donated a lovely range of raffle prizes.”
