We are the first tier of elected local Government, providing a link between the village community and County and District Councillors and MPs.

We spend between £6-7,000 a year raised via a parish precept which is collected as part of the Council Tax. The Parish Council has responsibilities including commenting on Planning Applications, liaising with Highways Authority on issues such as road signs, pot holes, verges etc, traffic, Community safety, litter, rights of way and the maintenance of Village assets which include the Sports Ground and village greens, defibrillator and Reading Room.

We currently hold public meetings up to six times a year at which local residents are most welcome to attend. We actively encourage residents to raise with us any issues at any time either personally or at an open meeting or by emailing the Parish Clerk at
