Parish Council

At the 2019 Parish Elections the following councillors were returned unopposed:

  • Wendy Crease
  • Allan Scott (Chair)
  • Pauline Squirrell
  • Rob Whiting

Two additional councillors were co-opted to ensure a quorum at all council meetings:

  • Jim Morgan
  • Brian Hubbard

Paul Marshall was returned as a councillor in 2019 but was disqualified for non-attendance. Jim Morgan has recently left the village, so currently there are two so-called ‘casual vacancies’ on the Council. You can read more about this here.

 

Council meetings advertised on the noticeboard and on this site are public. Anyone is welcome to attend, and may speak if recognised by the Chair.

Normally, unless you are invited to comment on a matter under discussion, you would wait to be recognised until the agenda item ‘Questions to the Chair’.

However, the Council does feel it is important to know what residents think – so if you have views on any of the matters you see on the records posted here, please address them to the Parish Clerk, Mrs Doreen Neun.

The Council is required to post documents demonstrating its financial compliance on this website.
