We hope residents will find this web site informative and useful as a source of information for matters relevant to the operations of the local council and the running of the village.

Parish Councils are not connected, as many think, to the church. They are the lowest level of Government providing local contact with residents and liaising with district and city councils.

The members of the council are volunteers and unpaid but still perform a valuable and important role in the running of villages and communities.

Not all communities or villages are part of a parish, although under English law any community may apply to become a parish.

Elsewhere in the web site the various powers and duties of the Parish Council are described for your information.
