We want to truly act for all the parishioners and give honest and best judgement by being informed and in touch with all views, so what better way than through this site?

Each Council member has an email address which you can find under "Councillors" in the navigation menu on the left hand side of this page. You can also see who your Parish Council members are by visiting this section of the site.
