Upcoming events


Introducing our new Community Group Chairperson,  Nick Harvey-Wade (on the left). Nick moved into the village 7 years ago with his husband, Ben. He has worked for the NHS since 2002 when he embarked on a career as a mental health nurse. Nick is very proud of his nursing background and has maintained his registration. He has trained as a therapist specialising in psychosis, has been a matron and an operational lead. Nick now works as Nick now works as a deputy director of improvement in NHS England.

Nick is responsible along with Ben for setting up Tidy Tyas, which meets to pick up litter the first Saturday after every FTCG meeting.                                                        As many of us now know, Nick enjoys amateur dramatics, and has played many a role in the past. But for us locals, his crowning moments have been his magical production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream performed in the recreation ground in July 2019, when he received a standing ovation, and his masterful production of A Christmas Carol last December, performed to packed audiences in St. Lucius Church. So will our new Chair be donning his director’s cap again for more theatre in the park, or a Christmas production perhaps? That would be telling  … this space!

New monthly film club to be run by  members of St. Lucius Church.

And watch out for the village Advent windows starting December 1st. Details daily on Facebook.
