It is with regret that the Parish Council received and accepted the resignation of Peter Hill. Peter has been a Parish Councillor for 44 years, joining in 1973. Peter has reached out to lots of people in the village and he will be missed. The Parish Council wants to pass on a big thank you to him for all his work and support over the years.
