May Parish Council Meeting – Date Change

The Government has recently ruled that local councils in England must resume holding their meetings on a face to face basis from 7th May onwards. This means that we cannot hold our May meeting using Zoom as we had originally planned and the meeting will therefore need to be held “face to face”.

However, because the next stage of relaxing the Covid restrictions do not come into force until the 17th May, and with the safety and wellbeing of councillors and public alike, we are moving our meeting to the week following the relaxation of restrictions.

Consequently, the May Parish Council Meeting will be held in the village hall on Monday 24th May at 7.30 pm.

Parish Planning Survey

Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, at the Parish Council meeting held on 9th March 2020, it was agreed that a broad community consultation should be organised to ascertain the degree of interest in, and support for, further developing some form of Parish Plan.

This is important because the ability to deliver any form of plan would depend, in varying degrees, upon the willingness of  residents to give up their time to help promote ideas, organise data, attend meetings and produce documentation etc.

The Parish Council are therefore asking if you would kindly consider undertaking a brief one page survey which can be downloaded by clicking here.  The document includes some additional background information to help you understand the task at hand, as well as details as to how you can return your completed survey to the parish council.

The more responses we receive, the more we can ensure the way we progress is in line with our community’s desires.  Thank you.

Parish Council Grants 2020

Applications are now invited from local community organisations for consideration of a grant from the Parish Council. If you are a not-for-profit organisation, and your activities benefit some, or all of the residents in the Parish, then we will consider you for a community grant in 2020.

The closing date for return of application forms is Monday 6th July 2020 and if you have any questions, please contact the Clerk, Jenny Walsh on or telephone 01386 854 735
