Car Parking The Parish Council have received a number of letters from residence of Downs View and Parsonage lane re the difficulty of pulling out onto the B3098 due to parked cars obstructing the sight line. We have passed this to county highways and await their response
Village Hall Car park The Car park is owned and maintained by the Parish Council primarily for the use of the Parish Hall. It is a private car park but villagers are free to use it for short term parking but please check with the Parish Hall its availability, as it is a small car park and sometimes all the spaces are required. Please park considerately as a few cars have recently parked so badly that other users were unable to park here. There is NO overnight parking or use by commercial vehicles. If personal circumstances require overnight accommodation for a short period please contact the clerk Malcolm Weick for permission.
