Many thanks to everyone who attended the parish AGM last Sunday. There was an excellent turnout, particularly when you consider the other attractions of the evening, and on behalf of the Parish Council I would like to thank Cecilia Webb and her helpers for the smooth organisation, and tea and sandwiches afterwards. The most notable feature of the evening was the election of three new members to the Parish Council: Gerard Barden, Greg Howard and John Wilson. New blood and new ideas will be very welcome on the council. The minutes of the last AGM, in 2007, are now online, as is the annual report for 2007-2008. We hope to have the minutes for Sunday's meeting written up and available on the website soon.

Thank you also to all the people who couldn't attend the meeting but who contributed ideas, questions and prayers. The next Parish Council meeting will be in September, so may we wish you a very relaxing summer.
