Do you know the difference between a Civil Parish and anEcclesiastical Parish? OurParish Councilpage will explain this in more detail.

We maintain this community website as a relevant source of factual information by regular updating.
We realise that not all of our residents are able to access either this website or our social media platforms. We therefore produce a quarterly news sheet which is posted on the many notice boards around the parish.
