NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH

The Neighbourhood Watch is now in place. At present it will be run as a parish council initiative but would hope in time it could be coordinated by residents. In the meantime we would really like residents to join us. The Watch covers all aspects of crime, ASB, fly tipping, any social concerns, vulnerable persons, environment shortfalls, etc. We just need members to report and monitor issues. There is a link to a dedicated Facebook page on LINKS.

WAR MEMORIAL CENTENARY

This week marks the centenary of the unveiling and dedication of the War Memorial sited in St Marys cemetery. Due to Covid restrictions the annual service had to be changed. The Parish Council laid a wreath prior to Remembrance Sunday which was filmed and included in the Rivers Team Online service. Full service can be seen on our Facebook page.
