Anti-social behaviour reporting

Dear residents,

If you witness any anti-social behaviour in the village, please make sure you report the event to the Police (999), the day you have seen/experienced it happening. This is really important – else a lack of reporting puts the Village as low priority on the Police radar, which means less oversight from them for our village.

Interested in playing Tennis?

Dear residents,

If you are enthusiastic about tennis, and interested in making use of the current tennis courts in the Village, found along Egremont Road, please inform the Parish Council of your interest asap.

Should there be enough interests in forming such a group, the Parish Council will then look into resurrecting the facilities for playing tennis.

Please also get in touch if you are interested in being a volunteer for helping out with the above.

Village Play Areas and Skate Park

Updated 13/5/2020

Following guidance from the Government the Tennis Court/MUGA on Egremont Road is open for sports use subject to following the conditions publised on the gate.

Breaches of the conditions may result in the area being closed again.

The public open spaces are open for excercise and recreation in line with Government guidelines. The Parish Council requires everyone using the open spaces to observe the goverment guidance on social distancing (.gov website).

Unfortunately, due to Government order, all of the play areas and the skate park are still closed until further notice to minimise the spread of coronavirus. As soon as we receive guidance from the Government about opening these facilities it will be reviewed.

If you or anyone in your household are displaying symptoms of coronavirus  you must follow the guidance on self-isolating and not use the public open spaces.

Parish Council Online Meetings

Due to the coronavirus pandemic it is not possible for the Parish Council to meet as it normally would. To enable the Council to conduct its business legislation (below) has been introduced which allow the Parish Council to hold meetings online.

The Parish Council will be holding its meetings using Zoom. The software is free (availiable for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android), and will allow the public (up to 100 participants) to view the meeting live.  You can also attend the meeting by telephone (details here)

The meeting link is availiable at the top of the agenda. Alternatively you can manually input the meeting ID into the zoom application on your device.

You are encouraged to familiarise yourself with the software before the meeting as we will not be able to provide technical support. You could  contact a friend or relative to test your camera, microphone and speakers work  correctly.

Please note that the meetings may be recorded and made availiable online.

Parish Councillors must be able to be heard and seen, the public only need to be able to be heard and seen (if possible) if they wish to participate during the public session at the start of the meeting. The public’s microphones and video will be turned off for the remainder of the meeting.

If you would like to speak during the public session please contact  the clerk at least 24 hours before the meeting. If possible a written copy of your statment would be helpful.
