Temporary M5 closure (Junctions 28-30): 10pm Sunday 30th July - 6am Monday 31st July

The National Grid will carry out scaffolding work on the stretch of line which crosses the M5 between junctions 28 and 30 from 10pm Sunday 30 July and 6am Monday 31 July. This means the M5 will close between those junctions. A diversion route will be in place. Details can be found on the project Google Map here. We’ll continue the following evening if further work is needed during the same hours.

We’ll erect scaffolding through the night to minimise disruption to residents and commuters. We’ll continue working on that stretch of line while the scaffolding is in place. A map of the line, including details of all the road closures and diversions, can be found on the National Grid SW Repairs Project Google Map. For more general information about the project, please visit



For anyone who is interested in what they are doing at the top of six mile hill while the road was closed, here are some photos sent to me by one of my shop customers.


Dusnford 2017 Pantomine: "Beauty and the Beast", written and directed by Ilona Lapka.

Dates for Pantomime this year are Saturday 7th January to Saturday 14th January 2017.

The evening performances will start at 7.45 and on each of the Saturdays there will also be a Matinee performance starting at 2.30.

The story is based on the original  1740 French fairytale with a hint of the modern Disney and more than a pinch of the writers own imagination!

Birthday Party for the Queen, 23rd April 2016

Thank you to everyone who attended a very successful Birthday Party for the Queen. It was enjoyed by over 70 people on saturday 23rd April. And a big thank you to all those who helped to plan it and worked hard on the day to make it all happen.

Everyone was very generous with donations and the raffle and we made £100 profit on the day. Please let Karen know in the shop if you have any ideas for what to spend it on. Two ideas are to start the fund for the defibrulator or towards planting for the village centre.
