Faces of The Village

Bonny Chaplin (L) and Donna Hamblion (R)

Bonny will be taking on the lease at the Community Hub from 5 June as Donna is standing down due to needing an operation on her foot and wanting to spend more time with her family.

Bonny, an experienced patisserie chef, and her daughter, Heidi, who lives in the village, intend to carry on much along the same lines. They want the community to be involved and have ideas for family events for evenings and summer weekends.

Thanks go to Donna for getting the Hub going so successfully and best wishes to Bonny with her new venture.
