The Parish council would like to wish you all a belated happy new year.

We are pleased to announce that SPEEDWATCH is again up and running in the village. The police report that the majority  of those caught, live within the parish boundaries, if this applies to you take note.  Our speedwatch coordinator would love to hear of anyone interested in joining the speedwatch team. Hours can be arranged to suit volunteers. Help us keep speed down in our village the more volunteers we have the more hours we can operate the gun,  contact   Geoff Lupton 831398 for full details.

The PARISH STEWARD scheme run by county hall is up and running again. He comes once a month to do those little jobs around the village like additional grass cutting filling potholes clearing leaves from paths clearing blocked drains cleaning road signs.
