From Cllr Julie Jones - 14th August 2020

Hope you are all enjoying the good weather! It's too hot for me, I am more a winter person. Give me snow over sun any day!

Lots going on in the village at the moment and not all of it good I am afraid.

Crime

There has been an absolutely appalling attack on a young man in the basketball court at the Memorial Park. This was both a physical and racial attack. The police are obviously investigating this and... Read More »

It was a fairly brief meeting but some key issues were:

From Cllr Mrs Julie Jones - July 2020

Well the Parish Council is back up and running and meeting via Zoom!

Some of us are still struggling to come to terms with the new 'normal'. I'd like to offer my condolences to those of us that have lost family and friends to this horrific virus.

Parish councillors have... Read More »

From Cllr Mrs Julie Jones - January 2020

Just one meeting in January and it was good to catch up with the work to be done in the New Year!

Flooding

It's disappointing that we still haven't received the promised report following the public meeting held last November. We are meeting with our new MP, Jane Hunt, this week and have asked her for support in obtaining the report so we can use it to guide the ongoing conversation with her about how... Read More »

It was a fairly short meeting last night………..
