Rarely do we get such a large choir to sing in our church, so this will be a real treat. It is a young choir led by Bert Landman and they will have performed in Ely Cathedral earlier in the […]
As you may already be aware from the Village Facebook page, the Wheatsheaf has closed it doors for the foreseeable future. Landlady Amy Harding had hoped to keep the pub going until the current license runs out in August. However, running the business has become increasingly difficult and she simply feels unable to continue.

On Thursday morning a couple of plucky locals caught someone in the act of dumping a caravan in Back Lane. At around 7am a 4×4 was seen towing the caravan into the lane by one of the locals. Not long after it appeared to get stuck. Alerted to this suspicious activity, the pair waited until the driver was distracted before making their approach. Thinking quickly, one parked across the entrance of lane whilst the other phoned the police.
The door of the shed was jemmied again, damaging the bolt and lock; total waste of time as there is absolutely nothing in the shed worth stealing. The bird screen on the north door was forced open, fortunately only minor damage. A further small pane of glass has been broken to join the one broken a couple of weeks ago. Sad really.
I am very pleased to report that at 4pm on Saturday, after 14 days and over 1,000 miles in the saddle, Stephen and Peter finally arrived in John O'Groats! This is a truly epic achievement by the two Titchmartians and one which – thanks to Stephen's notes – we've been able to follow all the way.
Just a quick reminder to say that the full amount for your tickets if due by 01/06/2017 (Thursday!). Lots of you have made deposits but now we need you to get us the rest of your ticket money before this coming thursday.
After more than 10 days in the saddle, Peter Dunn and Stephen Barber are closing in on their goal. In recent days their grueling journey has taken them across the Forth Road Bridge, through Peebles and on to Perth. They have just reached Inverness – which means John O'Groats is a mere 163 miles away! The only problem is that they are now in the highlands which promises some of the toughest terrain of the entire adventure. Luckily for us, Stephen is keeping notes along the way. Here's the latest so far…
So here we are, end of May and the holiday weekend. No matter what the weather time for an impromptu BBQ.
Villagers Stephen Barber and Peter Dunn are cycling all the way from Land's End to John O'Groats (LEJOG). They have only 2 weeks to complete the journey – a whopping 1,000+ miles – often travelling off the beaten track along B roads and country lanes. Their winding route passes through some of our finest countryside with the occssional pause to take in the sights. It all sounds like a great adventure – so it's good to know that Stephen is keeping a diary along the way. Here are his first 7 entries…
