The Parish Hall is managed by its own appointed Management Committee on a day-to-day basis, the Rules & Terms of Reference for which are included here: Rules and Terms of Reference for Parish Hall Management Committee, updated as of 1.11.21
The Recreation Ground Management Committee was disbanded in May 2022 in favour of individual working parties for specific projects, such as the current one for the revamp of the Playpark at the Ground. Any such working parties are and will be designed to consider, research and consult on proposed projects with a view to making recommendations to the Parish Council as the body responsible for the commissioning and financing of such projects; working parties will have very limited decision-making powers in their own rights.
