Representatives from village organisations can vary each year and we always welcome new groups. Would the present Youth groups be interested in becoming involved? If not, would anyone be interested in forming a Trust Youth Group? The Trust is keen to involve all age groups because the future of the Trust will rely on younger peoples enthusiasm, energy and commitment. Let us know what you think?
