About the Parish Council
Who we are and what we do
The Parish Council is responsible for a range of facilities throughout the village. In addition, the Councillors work to support the residents of the village and provide activities, events and services which are of benefit to the community. All our activities are underpinned by the Parish Council aims and objectives which are agreed annually.
We are an independent local democratic unit and councillors are elected every four years.
There are 11 councillors who meet regularly to make decisions on the work and direction of the council.
