Village News & Events:


Building on a variety of previous community engagements, such as our NH Plan, the Parish Projects research and what you have fed back directly at our meetings, to help guide our efforts, we are looking to advance three projects and would like your input to guide our thoughts on exactly how. We have set up 3 simple surveys to help get some specific input – and would appreciate a few moments of your time. The closing date for all surveys is 18 November 2017.

Community toilets – just how would you like these improved?

The Recreation Ground – we already have some money to invest, but what type of equipment would be best and should we spend more?

Teen recreation – we have a significant amount of money to spend (£100k), but what do you think teens would like and where should we put it?
