Why we recently had to upgrade the website.
The previous platform was the best available some eight years ago(!) when the village leaf was first created, but that software was becoming increasingly slow and unwieldy so by upgrading to WORDPRESS we can create something more flexible and dynamic.  And we’ve taken the opportunity to do some clearing out – simplifying the content and focusing on the things that most people visit most often – Green Shoots, Green Pages and Local Information. And as we move the Green Pages entries over to the new website, we can make any corrections or amendments to the information we provide about local organisations, businesses and services. So if you notice anything that’s out of date, please email
