The Parish Plan was produced as a result of consultations with our Residents back on 2009. It was adopted by the Parish Council such that there was guidance as to how and what our Residents considered important and needed for our village. This plan has offered guidance to the council to enable delivery of projects for the benefit of the village e.g. Youth Shelter,Village Map, Walks Booklet, installing new play equipment at Croft Way and Jubilee Field, Village centre Yellow lines and Car Park improvements, buying a Vehicle Activated sign, installing some new benches and bins.
