I love this time of year in the village...the days are warm and the nights are cool....I can put the duvet back on the bed, light a cosy fire of an evening, think about heartier foods and just generally reflect on a happy busy summer and look forward to the leaves changing and the fresher air!!
And there is still activity in the village, so take a look!!
