As the gap between the “haves” and the “have nots” has increased and the need for Foodbanks is as important as ever, there will continue to be collection points at the Village Shop (where we really appreciate their support) and the Methodist Church this year. Read more

Reminder – Phase 3 of the Traffic Calming Scheme

Don’t forget that for your vote to be valid you must complete and return your form to any Parish Councillor or the Clerk by midnight on Tuesday 31st October 2017.
We would encourage every villager on the electoral register to vote, to ensure that the answer we get from the ballot is truly representative of the views of the village. Irrespective of the number of ballot papers received, the answer that receives the most votes will determine whether or not Phase 3 is to be implemented
Remember, in a close contest your vote matters, and if you don’t vote you may end up with something you don’t want. – Jenny Jullien (Chair – HPC)
