Farewell to Sheila

A Farewell Tea was organised by the PCC for Sheila Fowler of Manton who is leaving the village to live nearer to her family in West Bridgford, Nottingham. Sheila has organised the distribution of the Parish Magazines until a couple of months ago, hosted many Coffee Mornings, supported all village events with enthusiasm, always hosted the post Carol Singing Christmas Party and served on both the PCC and the Village Hall Committee over the years. A true village legend. She will be missed by us all!
