The Hemyock Litter Pickers are looking for new volunteers to help keep a stretch of Hemyock road tidy; the more we have, the shorter the area!  Find out who your Chief Womble is and volunteer.

The Police have issued a report on recent crimes in the area, and request we keep sheds locked as they mostly concerned theft of power tools.

The Parish Council are promoting a scheme called Community Speed Watch, where trained local volunteers help police officers and PCSOs man speed guns to drive down local speeds.
