Moving - Aug 2002 


In order to make way for the Village Hall to be extended creating the permanent shop it was necessary to move the portacabin off the site - it was relocated about 100 yards away between St Andrews Church and the school thanks the kind permission of Mr Bill Franklin and the Church.

The move took place over the weekend 10th/11th August 2002 as illustrated below.
