 The death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Following the sad news of the death of Queen Elizabeth ll we are now in a period of public grief and national mourning.  The Parish Council is still waiting to hear exactly how public protocol will be applied at this time

However, this is to let you know that all formal meetings until after the Queen’s funeral are to be postponed. This means that our expected meeting on Monday 19th September will not now take place. While as a council, we would wish to show proper respect, it is the case that any decision made during a period of mourning may be subject to legal challenge.

I will keep you informed about when the council is next able to meet formally.
