What lovely Spring weather we have been enjoying lately and Summer is fast approaching. Planning for the community Picnic on the Green has been continuing behind the scenes. We want this to be a real village affair and a genuine opportunity to meet, have fun and start to shape our future. We have live music, a great raffle with some super prizes, activities for all the family with support from the Police, Fire Service and Red Cross. Sadly, this year sees the final Well Dressing in Brackenfield but this doesn't need to be the end of the road. If there is an appetite for doing things in the village this could be a new beginning. There is an open meeting on Monday 22 May at 7pm in the Church Hall. If you are curious or if you could donate a prize, suggest people we need to invite or offer any help on the day, please come and join us for a drink and a chat.
