Leafing over a new turn

As a result of some technical glitches we were recently off the air for a while. We decided to use the opportunity to take a fresh look at the Village Leaf content. We’ve simplified the ‘Green Shoots’ section on the front page, where you’ll find snippets of local news. To read a story in full, just click on the photo or the ‘read more’ link.

Feel free to let us know of anything new or interesting you think we should add to our ‘Local Information’ section – for example a club, society or activity group.

We’ll also be refreshing our ‘Green Pages’ listings. First we’ll contact all those with entries, for any changes. Then, as we gather the up to date information, we’ll begin re-publishing the category sections

To contact us on any matter, just email
