The great news is that two new appointments were made from interested village residents, Liam Nichol as Vice Chair and Emma Wade as Executive Committee member.   One Parish Councillor and the Parish Clerk were appointed, on an interim basis, as Treasurer and Secretary respectively.  Another Parish Councillor was appointed as the Parish Council’s representative on the Play Council.

The Parish Council, as tenants of the Play Area, hold the land upon trust for the Play Council and therefore have an interest in ensuring that an Executive Committee is properly constituted as soon as possible.
