Neighbourhood Plan
The Town Council is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a grant of 7000 by The Supporting Communities in Neighbourhood Planning Programme led by Locality, to further the work undertaken by the Neighbourhood Plan Working Party. This money will be used to commission specialists to produce assessments and appraisals that will underpin the research already completed.

We are really pleased to announce that after many months of clearance work, the dew pond at the far end of Long Close has been reinstated to its former glory. Out of sight for years, this a naturally occuring feature and water levels will fluctuate on a daily basis.
