Due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19 and the increase in cases, the decision has been taken to postpone the Parish Council meeting of 15th December, 2021.

Legislation does not currently allow for parish councils to meet virtually, therefore the risk to councillors, staff and members of the public meeting in person, at this current time, is too high.
