Parish Council News
Accounts for the year ending 31st March 2011 have been approved and the annual return has been forwarded to the external auditor. Residents may contact the Clerk to see the accounts.
We have reported the weeds that are growing out of a number of drain covers in the village and we hope that this will be addressed shortly. If a resident sees a drain that is blocked, please notify the Clerk or a Councillor.
Overhanging Plants and Shrubs
We have received several complaints regarding overgrown hedges and Highways are very kindly cutting them where the vegetation is causing visibility issues. Please do remember to check your borders regularly to ensure that pedestrians and road users do not have access problems.
The bus shelter is owned by the Parish and therefore the responsibility of the Parish. Recently it was the victim of graffiti. This kind of behaviour is not acceptable and we have notified the Police, our neighbourhood watch team and all residents by way of this magazine. If you see people drawing or writing on the shelter please notify either
the Police or the Clerk. This time a resident painted over the graffiti but next time the Parish will have to pay to have the graffiti removed, so please be vigilant and protect our neighbourhood. The Parish Council thanks the resident who kindly painted over the graffiti.
The Parish Council meets on Thursday, 1st September at 7.30pm. All residents are welcome to attend.

A big "Thank you" from Sara and Craig Moore
wanted to take this opportunity to THANK all those in the village who made it possible: Rev Mike Cadwallader on his first Wedding in our Church; Alistair Hotchkiss who played an extra fifteen minutes as the Bride was customarily late! Martyn and Claire Hamm for preparing and keeping the Church in such wonderful order; Andy Thomas for raising the flag; Margaret Phelps for dealing with all the administration and getting us so well organised; Debbie Morisot for the much-needed G&T to steady the nerves on the way to the Church! And finally to our village photographer. Thank you to you all, from Sara and Craig Moore.
