The size of our village doesn’t warrant a full scale Parish Council so instead we come together as a village community from time to time to discuss and share our views on issues that matter to us. As residents of South Scarle you are entitled to attend the meeting and voice your views or bring to the village notice of any issues you feel need addressing. These can be small or large things, remember someone else’s small issue could be huge to someone else. Please come along to meetings when you can and take part in ensuring our village stays vibrant and in touch. If you would like an advance notice of the next meeting then drop me your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add you to the mailing list.
David Duffield – Clerk to the Parish Meeting
