January Meetings Resumed
Following from the cancellation of the January meeting, we are pleased to say that 'meetings-in-person' are now to be resumed. There will be a meeting of the Planning Committee on Friday 21st January and a full Council meeting on Tuesday 1st February, both in St Bartholomew's Church Hall. Please see the 'Future Council Meetings' section on the right for more details. Current Government regulations do not allow us to hold meetings by 'Zoom', as we did prior to June 2021.
We hope that the situation will return to 'normal' soon and in the meantime, we wish all parishioners a Healthy and Happy New Year.
