Parish Council News
New Parish Councillor
Daniel Callaghan was co-opted to the Council at the meeting held in September and we welcome him to the team.
A wreath of poppies will be laid by the Chairman at the War Memorial on behalf of the Parish, but unfortunately this year there will be no ceremony.
If you haven’t already seen the wonderful display put together by Doug in the garden of the Black Bull, take a look and give yourself a treat!
Village Christmas Tree
The Parish Council will be providing the tree on the Village Green, but sadly there will be no tree lighting event with Mulled Wine and Mince Pies this year. The Council has agreed to purchase new lights as quite a few of the old strings no longer work.
It is the time of year when the Council starts planning for the future and budgeting for the next financial year; if you have any suggestions or would like to see something new in the village, please let us know via e-mail or letter to the Parish Office.
Bowls Green at Manor Park
It is with great sadness that the Bowls Club has folded due to a decline in membership and the Parish Council has to decide how the space could be used. If you have any suggestions, please let us know via e-mail or letter to the Parish Office.
If you own a hedge, please inspect the base of it as unfortunately, some people discard their rubbish in hedges and apart from being unsightly, it can endanger wildlife. Also walk all the way around your hedge, if you can, and trim all sides that may make it difficult for disability aid users, pedestrians, pushchairs and prams to traverse
