Quotes from Council of the Year Statement:-

"The winner of the 2018 Council of the Year Award is small but perfectly formed...Its size doesn't stop it being run in a proper and business-like way and aspiring to deliver more for its community.

Last year it took out a loan to upgrade its street lighting to modern and energy efficient LED. Many parish councils across the county are following suit.

This small council demonstrates that even with limited capacity a great deal can be achieved with the right ingredients: an able clerk and chairman, a strong team of councillors, a desire to do things right and do things well, a desire to make the community a better place to live ,work and play and, above all, a passion to be the best it can be."

Work to repair the collapsed sewer, and making good the road surface, is likely to continue until the weekend. Judging by the spoil (see picture) it is a big hole!

The road closure order is valid until 5th October.
