To work more effectively, the Parish Council has a number of working groups, who work on particular issues and make recommendations to the Council, where all the decisions are made.

Each working group has a chairperson and ‘Terms of Reference’ which outline what the working group in question will try to achieve. These are usually updated annually and the latest plan is available from the Parish Council Clerk by email. Working groups can be formed or closed whenever issues arise or are resolved.
