6th January – 19.00 Parish Council Meeting
26th January 2020 Puttenham Village Annual Lunch
Jules Binns, Verity Casar and Caroline Calver are once again busy organising our village lunch. 2020 will in fact be our 6th village lunch and we have been able to host 130-140 people of all ages every year for the past 5 years. To date, our youngest lunch guest has been just a few months old and our eldest 98 years! We feel that it is not just the new residents that Puttenham can welcome at the lunch but often in such a dark and gloomy month it can be the highlight for many to get out and socialize again after December. We look forward to seeing you there. For further information please contact Verity, Jules or Caroline via e-mail. email@example.com
