Very many thanks to those parishioners who were able to contribute to our annual ‘Spring clean’ on 18 March 2022. A significant amount of litter was collected, some undoubtedly been there for some time as we have not been able to hold a litter picking day for the last two years due to Covid. We were also most grateful to eight volunteers from National Grid who came along to lend a hand.




The site is getting well over 1,000 hits a month, and is read from many areas throughout the world!!

Councillor Mrs. Jendy Weekes receives updates for the website, especially events in the Parish, but would very much like to receive any information that Clubs and Organisations wish to be advertised.  She also lists events that are advertised in the Parish Magazine. It is thought that some Clubs and Organisations may have changed their contact details and therefore she requests that any changes are sent to her so that the website can be updated. Jendy can be contacted either through the website or on or both.  We would also like to receive details from businesses in the Parish who wish to be linked to the website
