It was very cold outside but a warm welcome and hot drinks greeted everyone who went to the get together held at Monkton Farleigh village hall on Saturday morning. More than 40 villagers came to enjoy the coffee, cakes and chat at the event which was organised by St Peter's church to provide an opportunity for the village community to share news and views. The morning proved a great success, building a friendly atmosphere in the village hall as it filled with lively conversation and the sound of the coffee machine working to keep up with demand.
