Impact of the Covid-19 pandemic

The parish council stopped holding ‘physical’ meetings from the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic, but since April 2020 has held virtual online meetings, open to the public, and has continued to function effectively. Public meetings will only recommence once permitted by government.

Many of the facilities in the village have restarted in some form during the last month – please do make use of these but ensure that social distancing and other precautions are maintained.
