In pictures: Village life
"The hub of village life"

Chris Attridge, 41, Postmaster.

"Ive been here 13 years. Id previously been working at Vauxhall Motors in Luton it was a bit of a rat race.

"I love being at the hub of village life. Its notorious for gossip, or as my wife calls it, 'exchange of information'. You get to know who are best friends, worst enemies. Youve got to be careful what you say.

"There is some resentment about the new villagers coming in, but to me theyre all customers and I treat them all the same."
