Parish Council Makeup. Mel Northfield joined Nov 2010; Trevor Kirby left April 2011; Peter Cook left September 2010 and very sadly passed away in March 2011. Peter Burton has now left the parish council having been Chairman for 3.5 years and a parish councillor for 9 years.
Village shop. Planning permission for a new building and extended car park has been granted and a committee formed to take the project forward.
Stone Pits Copse. Continued maintenance of this now two year old woodland has ensured its healthy growth. A new pedestrian style facilitates access onto the public footpath.
Pavilion and Recreation Ground. The new flooring in the pavilion had to be replaced; exterior landscaping work to form a new patio, retaining wall, access steps, ascot fencing and turf is now complete. Over four years approximately £120,000 has been spent on this venture, most of which has been funded by external agencies.
Salt Bins. Several new bins have been placed around the village to assist in icy weather. New climbing frame. Partly funded by MKC a new climbing frame has been installed at the village hall play area.
