This Month’s Parish Council Meeting Is On Wednesday 19th December

Unfortunately, the 12 December Parish Council meeting had to be cancelled due to councillor illness. Apologies for any inconvenience. The meeting will take place next week instead, on Wednesday 19 December, 7:30pm.


As you may be aware, there are only four councillors currently, and meetings require a minimum of three councillors to be quorate – otherwise no decisions can be made. If you are interested in taking up one of the vacant seats on the council and would like to find out more about being a councillor then please contact the Clerk:

This Month’s Parish Council Meeting To be Held On Monday 26 November

Regretfully, the parish council meeting that was due to take place on Wednesday 14 November, had to be cancelled as there were not enough councillors available for the meeting to be quorate.

The meeting has now been rescheduled for Monday 26 November and the agenda has been published. Please find a copy below.

An Update on the Play Park Phase Two

Great news! We are expecting the second phase of the play park renovation to get underway on Monday 19 November. This phase will see two new sets of swings installed along with new fencing and a 30m zip-wire just outside the park.

In the meantime, the Council has removed the seats from the cradle and flat swings, as these items were flagged as moderate risk in the safety inspection. As they are due to be replaced within the next month, it would not be cost effective to repair them.


Notice of Election – Nominations By 23 August – Updated
