TIME to clean up our act: The parish council is again inviting residents to volunteer as ‘litter-picker-uppers’ for the annual village tidy this Saturday, meeting at 10am at the village hall car park.
Wear sturdy clothing, boots and gloves – equipment and refreshments will be provided. Please come along and join in.
CLEANLINESS is next to godliness: Mattingley church will receive its annual spring clean next Wednesday, from 9.30am. All help would be greatly appreciated.
