The St. Michaels Village Committee was formed in 2007 by a small group of residents, keen to mark the start of the Christmas festivities with a tree in the centre of the village. The resulting official switch-on by the actor Sir Donald Sinden was well supported by the residents and established the ceremony as an annual village event.

Encouraged to greater things, the Committee put in motion a move to erect a village sign that would provide a focal point and identity for St. Michaels.

Residents were invited to submit a concept for the sign, the winner to be decided by a free vote by all residents. The winning design was manufactured and finally erected at an auspicious (albeit rather damp) ceremony in March 2008.

It became clear, due to the turnout at both occasions, that the residents were keen

to take part in and support their village events.

The title St. Michaels Village Committee was changed to the more appropriately named St. Michaels Village Community Group, as more residents were keen to take an interest in proceedings.
