With the overall aim of keeping everyone in the village in touch with each other at this difficult time and providing assistance to each other if or when required, the village has been divided up into twenty-one separate groups of houses with a contact person for each group. At the end of this post there are four maps showing all the house groups both numbered and colour coded. Also there is a list of all the group contacts. Hilary Patterson is the Central Co-ordinator and her contact details are shown at the top of the list Each group contact has a supply of this self-explanatory flyer . As a start to making contact with each group, flyers will be distributed

Church Roof Appeal As a reminder last November a large section of lead was stolen from the Church roof. Fortunately our insurers will cover the £20,000 cost of repairs. However there is a £500 excess to pay and there are some further unforeseen costs which may well fall outside the insurance cover. The Appeal's original target of £500 has now been reached but we have now extended the overall target to £1,000. A big thank you to all those in the village who have already supported the Appeal but we are still seeking further donations, even just £10, so as to ensure the inevitable unforeseen costs can be covered. If you would like to contribute towards the repairs please either: Send a donation to:
Wardington Church Roof Appeal In November last year a large section of lead was stolen from the Church roof. Following a similar theft from the roof of the chancel in 2011 various recommendations from our insurers, including the installation of a roof security system, were carried out. We were most grateful then to the many people - over eighty - in the village who contributed to the specific appeal for funds. Fortunately our insurers will cover the £20,000 cost of repairs. However there is a £500 excess to pay and there may be some further unforeseen costs which fall outside the insurance cover which we will not know about until after the work starts in early March. We are therefore appealing for
