Went for the Hitchcock-themed Halloween event on 29/10/16. You could see the passion of the volunteers and the staff ; the hardwork and effort that went into the planning. Kudos to them for a well-executed event.

Fabulous old local history museum, housed in the former gaol and even has a cell with 'prisoner'.

Vestry is a hidden gem. With free activities and events all year round there's always something to do, and so often for free!
