Parish Council Meeting - Monday 6th January 2020

An Extra-ordinary Meeting of the Parish Council has been called to discuss the Planning Application submitted by Badminton Estate.


There has been a break-in to a property in the village.  All residents are asked to by alert and report to the police any suspicious vehicles or persons.

A renewed request has been made for a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme to be established in the village.  This was attempted a few years ago but, despite a lot of initial enthusiasm, the efforts came to nothing.

If you have a little spare time and would like to help co-ordinate a Neighbourhood Watch then please contact any member of the Parish Council or the Parish Clerk.  We need someone to help co-ordinate the contact lists which can be used to alert others in the village in case of problems and help to liaise with the police.
