About the Council
The council is a civil parish council, not connected to the Church in any way. It is made up of seven councillors who must be local people plus a part-time parish clerk who looks after the administration and communications. Its object is to represent the interests of local residents in the running of their parish. Elections take place for the posts on the council every four years when all voters in the parish may vote.
