Asdee Community Development Update – Sept 2021
Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions we have been unable to hold our Monthly Community Meetings. We hope to re-instate these meetings in the next few months, once restrictions allow.
In the interim, we will keep you updated, via our social media platforms with project updates and plans.
Firstly, well done to everyone who organised, took part, or turned out for the Vintage Tractor Run in the village today. It was a mighty day in the village. We will have photos & videos on our website & social media tomorrow evening.
