VASA needs volunteers to help get local patients to receive the Coronavirus vaccination.
Volunteers drivers: If you have a clean driving licence and would like to help people in your community who would otherwise struggle to get to their vaccination appointment and home again, please get in touch. 45p mileage costs paid.
Telephone operators: Have you got your own computer, decent admin skills and like talking on the telephone? We need plenty of people to help take transport bookings to vaccination appointments. If you could spare one or two mornings a week we would love to hear from you.
To help please call 01789 262889 or email

Keeping footpaths and bridleways open...
The Parish Council is conducting a survey of all the footpaths and bridleways in the parish to ensure that these are kept open and are easy of access.
If you know of any paths which are obstructed by brambles, overgrown hedges, overhanging trees or any other obstacles, please inform the Clerk.
Ordnance Survey grid references are most helpful in locating the trouble spots, but any detailed description of the exact location(s) will be welcome.
