Welcome - The Parish Council website has been revamped and is now a source of lots of new information. In addition to general Parish Council information, it also includes direct links to: schools, doctors, airports, rail, emergencies for water, gas etc., flooding, cost of living support, and a 'Report It' button to allow you to directly report Potholes, Fly Tipping, Missed Bin Collection etc., to either HCC or EHDC. Please have a look and see (it is still a work in progress).
