There will be no AGM this year - the annual accounts will be agreed by the Council at this or a future meeting depending on the progress with audit.

An agenda has been posted on the website and on notice boards: if anyone wishes to riase a matter for the Council's attention at this meeting please notify the Clerk by clicking This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


Following the measures announced by the Prime Minister on Monday 23 March the Parish Council has set up a local support network in consultation with other stakeholders including St Andrews Church. For more information please see our dedicated Covid-19 virus section on this website. 

A big shout out to Lynne Lane and Alison Browning who have set up a local milk delivery for the folks in Woodtown
