Discussions with the College of Law Site Owners

The Parish Council is in discussion with the new owners of the College of Law site who have put forward two potential proposals for the site. The owners were provided with an overview of the current challenges faced by the village and particular emphasis was made on what planning gains would be available to the village in areas in which we might want funding assistance. Further discussions are due to take place and will be reported back to the Council at their February meeting.

Fishing at The Pit

Earlier this year the Parish Council were fortunate in obtaining the services of Will Wrigley, a resident of the village with many years’ experience in fishing, to act as volunteer Bank Warden to oversee the issuing of fishing permits to children of the village to fish at The Pit. He has been very active over the summer months engaging with the youngsters advising them of the correct equipment to use. Will has also made the area next to the fishing platforms more accessible by cutting back overhanging tree branches and vegetation, removing litter and encouraging anglers to ‘take their litter home’.

The Parish Council have also welcomed a volunteer Sub-Bank Warden, Steve Jones, to assist Will in all aspects of monitoring the fishing activities at The Pit and would like to thank them both for taking on these roles it is very much appreciated.
