Celebrations Over

The village is slowly returning to normal after the various celebrations held to commemorate the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles 111. The streets and houses were tastefully decorated with flags and bunting, not to mention the Scarecrow Trail, taking place as part of the festivities. The Hog Roast, musical entertainment and an art display were held to name but a few events taking place during the holiday period.

An excellent effort by all concerned and mentioned far and wide as a great show-piece over the time, compared with other villages visited, and much appreciated coming from such a small community. Some flags and banners still remain in situ, the owners savouring every moment of an event that will become part of our local and national history.

Well done all!

Community Speed Watch

The volunteers from the local Speed Watch Team have been active in the village once again, operating at various times of day and night. Their efforts to help reduce speeding through the village and prevent accidents or injury are monitored and appreciated by the local police. This allows the police to concentrate their efforts on other matters of a criminal nature which may require urgent attention.

Parish Council

The Parish Council met as arranged on Wednesday 10th May in the Village Hall at the usual time of 7:00pm. This was the annual Parish Meeting and Annual General Meeting, as well as the monthly Council Meeting.  Three various Agendas were to hand.

Important extracts from the meetings are as follows:

  • A full council was present, so no apologies necessary.
  • Two local residents joined the council on the night, Mr. Neil Fey, from Sutton Lane, and Mr. Rob Boeuf, from Station Road in the village, bringing the number of councillors to nine in total.
  • A new Chairperson was chosen during the proceedings, and Councillor Martin Rees now holds that post.
  • From the floor, members of the public asked about maintenance of footpaths in the village, Neighbourhood Watch questions were raised and answered, and Speedwatch questions arose and were answered.
  • All agenda items were dealt with in due course.

Post Office

The Post office operates in the Village Hall on Wednesdays from 10:00am to 12:30pm. Services offered include Banking, Cash Deposits, Cash Withdrawals, Bill Payments plus lots more.
