Parish Noticeboards

Residents are very welcome to advertise Parish events or services on our Parish Council noticeboards at The Street, Greenway, the Village Hall, the Stores on School Road, Farriers Green, St Quintins Park, Brittons Ash Green and Canal View. This is why our Parish Notice boards are not boxed in.  Please respect this facility; do not post anything that is not an event or a service; and please remove your advertisement after the event has passed. Please do not use a staple gun, it may be easy for the notice poster but its very difficult for subsequent users!



Do you have a couple of hours a month, and want to help to keep the Parish looking clean and tidy and a pleasant place to live? Then please phone the Clerk, Tricia Cavill, on 01823 413 524.  The Parish Council would be delighted to hear from you!




Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
