Family and community

Village life continues to thrive with communities gathering around parish halls, community centres, churches, schools, shops and pubs. Although some young people move away, local traditions are still strong. Many parishes are alive with arts and crafts, community fairs, fetes, regattas, youth clubs and yoga classes. Those visiting or recently moved here take part alongside people born in the area.
whatever your background we hope you enjoy GoldenDays and we'd love to hear from you: Take part
