The following are our principal objectives.

- To encourage a high standard of architecture and town & country planning.
The Trust organises a number of events throughout the year to which both members and the public are invited. This also includes our annual village show which takes place at the end of August. Check the events page for details.
It was proposed at the start of this millennium that the Trust should undertake a project to record village life and property by way of photography, film or recordings. At this stage in the discussions, if anyone has any material by way of artefacts or old photographs which might be suitable please contact us.
