Important News: Parking: We will still be parking in the village until the end of the year, but will follow safety issues for fire trucks. Do not park on any sidewalk. Don’t park on the inner circle, so fire truck can get through. Don’t park past end of garden, so fire truck can get to the hydrant. THANKS!
