Litter & Fly Tipping

There has been a lot of extra litter dropped during the lockdown, especially drink bottles and cans and fast food containers and it is VERY ANNOYING! as is the fly tipping that has been going on in various areas of the Parish. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has been collecting up the litter and reporting the fly tipping thereby helping to keep our beautiful village tidy.


A little rhyme I once saw in a beauty spot:


“Never let it be said, and said to your shame, that all was beauty here before you came.”
