People sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Just by way of information, there are 15 young men from the village who gave their lives in World War I who are remembered on the brass plaque attached to the Memorial Organ in the Chapel and 2 men from WW2 who are also remembered in the Chapel

We shouldn’t forget their sacrifice and that of the Armed Services in later conflicts.
