Your council needs you!

May 19, 2015 in Announcements
The Parish Council has applied for and received permission to increase its membership to seven with two more members required right now. This is a very busy time for the Parish and it would not be too much of an exaggeration to say that, were it not for all the volunteers on the various groups both unsung (you know who you are) and high profile, the volume of work would be overwhelming. So, the message is: your Council – your village – needs you! No particular expertise required, just enthusiasm and a desire to help. If you are interested please see Chris Neill in the Post Office or email the Clerk, Anne Davies at:
