Chairman’s Christmas Message

On behalf of the Parish Council I would like to wish everyone in the village as good a Christmas and New Year as might be possible in these strange times. Hopefully we can all enjoy the festivities whilst complying with the rules and regulations the Government have laid down.

I would like to thank various people for their support during the last twelve months.

A special thank you to the Clerk, Samantha King, for her continued efforts keeping all of the Councillors in line and for being able to work from home. Much appreciated.

A special thanks also must go to Councillor Eyres for his ongoing support to the Council and arranging the removal and transporting of the village Christmas tree.

My thanks also to the Councillors who assisted and decorated the tree. The tree was donated by Maggie (who works in the Costcutter shop) from her garden in Billy Emms. Many thanks for the donation !

My thanks to the litter pickers who come out whatever the weather, and those who litter pick independently to keep the village tidy when we have not been able to meet as a group. To the bulb planters in October for their support in what was not particularly wonderful weather.

My thanks to Bruce McIssacs, our Handyman/Gardener for looking after the flower beds and keeping the street furniture in good order plus his many other jobs around the village.

I must also applaud the allotment holders this year. Our allotments have been a picture with fruit and vegetables galore. A welcome to the four new allotment holders who we hope will continue the good work on the newly marked out pitches around what was the Scout Hut.

Last of all to the volunteers who assisted during lockdown with helping the vulnerable and those who were isolating. Many thanks.

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone !
