Coronavirus (COVID-19): A note from the Chair of the Council Dear parishioners, In these unforeseen and uncertain times may I take a moment to ask everyone to be a little more neighbourly and (safely) check in on any of our fellow parishioners who may be elderly and/or more vulnerable at this time. A phone call could make all the difference to someone who is feeling anxious at this time. The NHS and Public Health England websites (see below) are the best places to find all the information you need on how to protect yourself and others. If you are, or know of anyone who is, without access to the internet then please don’t hesitate to call any one of the parish councillors and we will do our best to help give you the information you need. Future meetings of the Parish Council will be subject to ongoing Government advice. Please keep an eye on our website, Facebook page or notice boards for announcements. Take care.
