Next Parish Council Meeting on Wed 18th March 2015 (Please note revised date)
All parishioners are welcome to attend the meeting which takes place in the Memorial Hall commencing at 7pm.
We have received a request for the New Plans for Church Farm to be discussed with residents. This will be ahead of our normal meeting and therefore we have allowed 1 hour for a presentation and for questions.
It is important to know that, as yet, any plans for Church Farm are purely at a discussion stage and no plans have yet been submitted as a planning application.

Earlier in the year kerbs were installed along a number of roads in the village. While protecting the verges they have also contributed to a notable reduction in speed as it is more difficult for vehicles to pass side by side.
