Village Works

In the past few months the worn bench on the Casey has been replaced by a set of 2 chairs facing in 2 directions taking in the lovely views.
This bench includes a dedication to David Scott who stood down from the Parish Council last year in recognition of his 50 years of service to the Parish Council



 The Village Phonebox has been purchased by the Parish Council for £1 and works have started to turn this into a village book lending library with the potential to add CD's and jigsaws (space dependent). Works will be completed as the weather improves and the outside of the box will also be repainted.

Damage to Hedgerows - residents please be vigilent

At the March 2018 Parish Council meeting it was reported that in early January 2018 a significant amount of damage had been caused by the illegal removal of 30m of hedgerow and several trees on Sandon Bank. this was done one Sunday and is being treated as a criminal matter. Anyone who witnessed this is urged to phone the police with information.
Residents are asked to question any activity they see of this nature - if in doubt please contact the police as this has caused significant damage to an area of the countryside and will cost the local landowner significant amounts to resolve.
