Reydon Village Plan had a stand at The Randolph Family Fun Day on August 26 2013 and invited people to write their ideas about Reydon onto post-it notes that were then displayed on a board. This prompted lively discussion and the ideas posted onto the display board have been transcribed below. If you would like to share your thoughts on life in Reydon, then please contact us.
