The focal point is St James Church in High Wych Road. There is parking at the church, at High Wych C of E Primary School and at the private Rivers Hospital at the entrance to the village.

Look out also for toadstools made out of recycled umbrellas and traffic cones and large butterflies created using recycled plastic, which were all made by villagers at an event outside the Memorial Hall on July 3.
