Councillor Vacancy

We would like to thank Jo Alexander who has been a member of the Parish Council for the past two years and representative for the playground. With increasing working commitments and two young children Jo has decided to resign as a Parish Councillor but we do hope that she will seek to rejoin in future years if time permits.

If you are interested in filling the vacancy created by Jo’s departure please contact the Chair, the Clerk of any of the councillors listed on the contacts page.

Drones

Operating drones is not illegal; however, users are restricted from repeatedly flying them in close proximity to residential addresses and doing this could lead to them being dealt with for Anti-Social behaviour or committing a S.4a/S.5 Public Order Act offence.

If you are concerned that a drone appears as though it is being used in suspicious circumstances e.g. if it continuously hovers over a particular area, please contact the Police on 101.
