The Parish Council would like to thank and apologise to those who came along for the Village Clean on Saturday morning. The Parish Council is equally disappointed that the equipment was not available in good time for the Tidy to go ahead.
The Parish Council will be looking to organise the next Tidy in the new year, and in the meantime urges everyone to use litter bins and take litter home.
The Parish Council also thanks those who regularly litter pick around the village and encourages others to do the same.
