Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. It is the focal point of the local rural area and home to the local schools (primary and secondary), both with very good reputations. Local amenities include: Co-op, paper shop, petrol station, fire station, post office, five pubs (The Bell And Crown, The Black Lion, Downe Arms, Plough Inn & The Brewers Arms), four hairdressers, chemist, doctors surgery and hardware store, and two florists. Most of which are situated on the Market Place. The town continues to adapt and modernize in the wake of the 21st century, in an attempt to meet the needs of an increasingly cosmopolitan population. The Market Place is host to a small delicatessen, called ''Kitchen'', and a cafÃ© named ''Bon AppÃ©tit'', which both offer deli food, snacks, and luncheon.
