Access to Information

We have already incorporated an archive of the Parish Council minutes from meetings January 2005 onwards and will continue to upload the latest dates and minutes from all the Parish Council meetings onto this site.

We will use the News and Events column to keep you informed about local information and other items which we think are important for you to know. The column will also carry details about what’s happening in the area and we encourage the organisers of events to let us know, using the contact form, so we can provide further publicity for your activities.
