Loe Lae Happy Christmas!


A very happy Christmas to all our readers, and an invitation to join us for carols around the Christmas tree on Thursday 19 December in the garden of Tylers, on the bank of the Loose stream in the heart of the village. We start at 7pm. Brass band, traditional carols, hot mince pies and mulled wine make this the perfect way to celebrate the start of the holiday.
