Business Closure: It was another disappointing week for the local community with the news of another small business closing in the village. The local take-away “Fryer Tuck” provided a valuable service for the past number of years serving tasty food to the public as well as catering for birthday parties and family celebrations. It was also a valuable source of part-time employment and we wish Ben and her staff all the best for the future.
