Welcome to the Village Leaf – our community website and facebook for Rushlake Green and the surrounding areas.
The (all new) Village Leaf is a free-to-access noticeboard for everyone in the community. We rely on volunteered time for all the editorial work and we fund the technical stuff like domains and software platforms using donations from supportive local residents. To send in content for blogs or for info, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Use the drop down menus at the top of this page to access Green Pages (entries about local businesses and organisations) and Local Information.
We will publish new blog posts here on the front page as new information emerges. Click on any blog below (picture, title or ‘read more’) to read the full story.
