The Parish Council is responsible for many aspects of village life, including the provision of recreation facilities, commenting on planning applications and supporting parish initiatives, such as providing grants to local organisations.
The Parish Council usually meets at 7pm on the first Monday of each month in the Community Room adjoining the school; details of the meetings appear on the Parish Council website. The first 15 minutes of each meeting are allocated to the public to allow them to raise any matters of concern. In addition to the monthly meetings there is the Annual Parish Assembly which takes place in April.
