Church wall repair: The Clerk has contacted the Diocese who said that it was the council’s responsibility for repairs as long and as they were only minor no faculty would need be applied for.


Village Hall: No news.

PCC: The two flowerbeds at the entrance to the Churchyard need attention the PCC asked if they could arrange someone to tend them, the council agreed. The rubbish heap at the back of the Churchyard is an awful mess and will need to be cleared at some point.
