The Parish Council meets four times a year at the Village Hall at 7pm. Dates of meetings and the minutes are published below. The Council welcomes members of the public and items for discussion should be submitted through a Council Member at least one week prior to the next meeting. Planning applications are considered at Council Meetings or additional meetings held as required.

Speed Indicator Device

The parish council have purchased and installed a SID (speed indicator device) at the entrances to the village on the Marnhull Road thanks to the generosity of businesses and individuals within the village

These devices flash up the speed of a vehicle as it approaches. We have purchased one device to be moved between each end of the village. The village funds and administers the system.

Village Defibrillator

The Defibrillator is now installed on the garden side of the White Horse Pub.

IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY FIRSTLY call 999 and ask for the ambulance service. They will talk you through what you need to do and give you the code for the defibrillator box if it is needed.

A number of villagers have agreed to act as contact points in the case of a cardiac emergency. The list below are people who can help and have a basic understanding of the defibrillator.
