Dear Members of Planning Committee

Beautifying the Village

With all the recent rain and the warm weather finally breaking through gardens are leaping out of the ground and everyone is getting their hands dirty! In the village, you may have noticed, this has happened as well due to the dedicated effort of volunteers who have been decorating the street scene with flower barrels and planting the flowerbeds at the arena for your enjoyment and pleasure.
