The Parish Council plans to continue to improve local facilities which will include improvements to play areas, continuing plans to extend the burial ground, new allotments and the Climate Change Working Group will be creating wildflower meadows and walkways at The Old Quarry and tree planting at Bill Baileys Field.

It is recognised that residents continue to face mounting household expenses and we do not wish to add to such burdens. The Council have managed costs prudently throughout 2023/24 whereby savings can and have been made and this will continue through 2024/25.

There has been a further increase in new properties within the parish which provides additional contributions which has enabled us to keep the increase in the precept to just 1%.
