Our Environment

These pages are dedicated to our local environment – we live in a wonderfully unspoilt part of the county and need to do whatever we can to help maintain this area.

We’re also going to use part of this section to highlight thinks being done to address Climate Change, becoming carbon neutral and energy saving tips … and these can come from anyone in the parish!  More info on this initiative to come later in the Summer of 2019.
