Owing to the Coronavirus situation England is still in partial lock-down – with strong restrictions and penalties for anyone breaking the rules.
On 22nd February the Prime Minister initiated the four step exit strategy from the lockdown.
The first step began on the 4th March allowing schools to reopen and a maximum of two people could meet outdoors in order to chat.
This then changed from 29th March where outdoor gatherings of up to six people or two households are now allowed. Outdoor sports such as football, golf and tennis are also now allowed.

2021 ELECTIONS of Local Councillors
Parish and Local County elections, where people vote for whom we want to represent us, have now taken place on 6th May and results have now been published.
We were informed by the local election committee that our own Parish Council election was uncontested – in other words there were fewer Councillors than the normal number required so there was no need for a voting process to elect them.
The first meeting (Annual Parish Meeting and the Annual General Meetings took place on Wednesday 12th May 2021 where the old years business was concluded and the Councillor positions for Chairman and Vice Chairman were voted for and approved.
We do have a vacancy on the Council as Councillor Mead stepped down owing to his no longer residing within the Parish district which is a pre-requisite for the post.
