General News It's that time of year again, Christmas, it is a nice time of year, but they come around too quickly.  First I should thank all those who turned out and helped with the Big Litter Pick, across the whole District there where 28 Parishes that took part during the Autumn, increasing every year, out of 48 Parishes. What is noticeable is that not so much rubbish is being picked up, I think that the majority of our Community is being more careful in dropping rubbish. Unfortunately, there is a few that are not so careful, thanks must go to all those who do clear up behind the more careless. We will have another clear up in the Spring.

What a night!
