MVP was formed in 2008/2009 by a group of villagers wanting to fulfil some of the requests expressed by the village in the second Parish Plan – more things going on locally for young families, more things going on locally for the older generation, and better communications, for example. You can see the Parish Plan on the SMPC website with the actions we set off to try and do.
