Parish Wildlife

A varied agricultural scene - various arable crops, cows, sheep and even deer, provide a good base for a wide variety of wildlife in the parish. Add to this the various small copses and woods, and the lack of human beings, and the mix is attractive.

Parish Council

At the Full Parish Council Meeting of Wednesday 4 January 2017, all members present AGREED to seek the approval of the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government to apply for a PWLB loan of £12,000 up to 9.5 years to replace all the streetlights within the parish area with more efficient units. The annual loan repayments will come to around £1,360. In addition, the council is also increasing the parish precept by 6.66% which is the equivalent to an extra £2.54 to support the Lyth Hill Country Park. Please confirm whether you are in favour of this increase by 25th April 2018.
