Update on collapsed wall in the village
The PC sends their thanks to Paul Mustoe for the rebuild of the wall at the playground and to the Clark family for their ongoing support.
Funding for the wall rebuild has come in part from a donation from Jill Matthew at CDC and the PC understands there may also be a contribution from Frankie Gale following the successful village Christmas Fayre. All donations have been gratefully received and the PC sends their thanks to all contributors.
There were no concerns raised by the PC in regard to current planning applications
Repairs have been made to pot holes in the village and anybody identifying new damage requiring attention is encouraged to register the detail online via the online service:
