There was an active social life in the village with regular well attended gatherings. Such as this one seen here.
As was said before it was a close knit community, with many inter marriages and the villagers were there for each other. At any fund raising event they all helped in anyway they could.
Concerts, socials,and choir outings, which were organised by Mr Buxton (organist and headmaster) were also particular highlights.
The landowners, gentry, and men of the village formed a charitable society called the Oddfellows. Their aim was to help the poor and needy in anyway they could either financialy or in kind. The Wells Trust was another charity (which still exists) which provided schooling and clothing for 10 apprentice boys.
Today there is still an active social life in the village.
