We are one of more than 9000 parish councils in England and are the first or lowest tier of government. Some of the issues that concern the Parish Council are:
Planning, highways, transport and traffic, community safety, housing, street lighting, allotments, cemeteries, playing fields, community centres, litter, war memorials, seats and shelters, rights of way
We are funded through taxation called the precept which is collected with the council tax payments. Details of our finances can be found here **Insert link** on the website so that you know how we are spending out budget.
We meet every other month at The Bridge, St. Mary Magdalene Church to discuss the relevant issues and make decisions together. Members of the public are welcome to join us at the meetings. Notice is given on the Facebook page, this website and also on the village noticeboard outside the shop.
You can also speak to at least two Councillors on the third Saturday of each month at the Monthly Market in the Jubilee Hall
