Everyone who has invested in Heart of the Village will be receiving a letter of thanks and a signed Share Certificate soon. In the meantime we would like to express our collective appreciation to all 151 who have had the vision and generosity to help us make the community shop and pub a reality. To the other 600 or so adult residents who have not yet taken the plunge: please join us; the water is lovely, and will get warmer the more of us there are.

We need the numbers, both so that HOTV is as representative as possible, and because the more money we have, the easier it will be to provide a better and more secure set of services for the village well into the future.
