With both the Government and Local Authorities using the internet to gauge views, run consultations, being notified of issues and running the Local Planning Authority’s systems there is a need to provide local residents with both the technology to access these services and the opportunity to be shown how to use the services.

Village resident Keith Watson has volunteered to run an IT HUB twice a week in the conference room at the Village Hall. He will be looking to provide a service that residents require so please pop along and let him know if there is anything else that you would like added to the service.


The Village Hall is available for hire. The charges are £12/hour for village residents, and £24/hour for non-residents. There is a minimum 3-hour booking period. For more details contact the Letting Secretary.
