AGMs are not popular. So it was a great achievement and sign of commitment that 40 came to hear the Parish Council give an account of its stewardship, to offer their comments favourable and otherwise, and voice hopes and suggestions for the new year. We now have a strong newly-elected complement of 11 lay members. The verdict was that the ending PPC had done well. There were suggestions for renewal and priorities that they will set about implementing when they meet on 8th August.
