Could you be a Parish Councillor? The Council meets every other month from January. Funding is raised through a small part of Council Tax that helps fund things such as maintaining the Rec and Village Hall, owning and operating the Cemetery, supplementary grass cutting of public areas and local grants. The Council comments on all planning applications and works with County and District Councils to bring local knowledge and perspective to their decisions on services that affect our area. There are always opportunities to do more for those who want to get involved in activities beyond the core responsibilities of the council, but that isn’t a requirement. To find out more about the council and its activities, minutes of meetings and other documents are on this website.
