As we will need to follow full Covid guidelines we ask that if possible people "book " a place as numbers may be limited to keep everyone safe and we would wish not to disapoint any one . You may email or phone .
Following this meeting the Annual Parish Council meeting will see us appoint a Chair and Vice chair for the next 12 months along with committee members

Covid 19 virus has forced us to cancel our meeting due to take place on the 6th April 2020 , we are then due to hold our next meeting on the 11th May 2020 . Due to the current situation we are unable at this time to say whether this meeting will be able to go ahead. Several of our members will be in the Isolation bracket for the 12 weeks and therefore we know they cannot attend and we will still need to be quorate to be able to make decisions if that meeting goes ahead. Currently the Council has devolved powers to the Clerk who will be making decisions along with the support of the Chair. Decisions which we can defer we will do but bills will still need paying along with salaries, any planning that comes in which we think will be minimal will be discussed via telephone/email with Councillors before any comments are added. We hope to be back to normal as soon as possible and ask that you all stay safe and look after each other.
our 1st full Council meeting will be held on Sept 14th 2020, we will follow all safety guidlines to ensure both Council members and residents are kept safe which may mean limiting numbers.
