Come along to our next informal meeting of the Friends Of Roughlee Appearance (FORA) – a group of residents coming together to do an odd job or two, augmenting the work that is already done by the village gardener and lengthsman.
The idea is to bring local people together to do their bit for our village’s appearance, with the aim of winning the Best Kept Village Competition.
