The parish council has 9 salt bins across the parish that residents can use to clear any public path, pavement or road if the ground is icy or if you think it’s going to freeze over. It’s not for people to use on their own private driveway, garden path or business premises.

Safeguarding for children and vulnerable adults

This council takes seriously its responsibility under the current legislation to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, young people and adults, and to work together with other agencies to ensure that there are adequate arrangements within our organisation to identify and support those who are suffering harm. Where someone is suffering significant harm, or is likely to do so, action will be taken to protect that person.

Please contact the Clerk’s Office if you have any concerns. All calls in strictest confidence.
