I would like to quash any rumours that I will be swapping my dazzling career as a shopkeeper for the dizzy heights and fiscally more rewarding charms of Hollywood stardom, after my left hand and three digits of the right starred opposite Neil Morrissey for the forthcoming film ‘Caffiend’ (though the cameraman assured me that a ‘full frontal’ shot would be used – a dubious honour!)

It reminds us that our church has stood proud and strong at the heart of our village through storms, wars, village festivals, in both sad and happy times, since 1352.
