There was no formal meeting in August.

Prior to the formal Parish Council meeting there was a period devoted to comment from members of the public and District and County Councillors’ reports. County Cllr. Reynolds and District Cllrs.

The following organisation may be of interest to some members of our community.
Every year large amounts of social security benefits are unclaimed because many people do not know what they are entitled to, or how to claim, and older people and those with disabilities face particular difficulties. The Village Benefits Advice Service helps people to claim their share of these benefits, by offering advice and assistance.
