Parish Council Meeting

Please support your local Parish council by attending meetings held on alternate months in the Village Hall at 7:30 pm throughout the year. The date of the next meeting is: -

Tuesday 14th November

St. Margaret's Clock and Bell Restoration

Firstly, a big thank you for over 100 signatures showing interest in the above project. To date we are applying for grants - but of course these things do not happen overnight and we could be working to an 18-month to 2-year period. Meetings have been held, phone calls made and our church architect has been called upon for restoration advice.

Please let's get this part of our heritage working again, to be admired by all. Any ideas of fundraising would be gratefully received and acted upon. More update news in December's G4 issue. Our thanks again for your interest and hopefully help.

Please come along to the meeting to find out more. Details about the Community-owned Woodland scheme are available via the Greenlight Trust website - www. www.greenlighttrust.org
