Regrettably the dog of one of our villagers has died - the vet thinks it might have been caused by Ragwort poisoning.

The owners have re-traced their steps across the fields from Newnham to Badby and in the 2nd field (where the crops are growing) they have found Ragwort growing.

It is poisonous, not just to dogs, but to most animals.

Please be aware, and if you don't know what Ragwort looks like, then please look it up. More »

Agenda for the Annual Parish Meeting to be held remotely by Zoom on Thursday 27 May 2021 at 7pm - joining details are on the agenda

The Annual Parish Meeting is a legacy from the Middle Ages, when Local Councils did not exist, and all local decision making was carried out by meetings of the whole community

The Annual Parish Meeting is NOT a Parish Council meeting. It does not have the formality of a Parish Council meeting nor can it make decisions. It is more of an open forum for you to generate discussion, questions and ideas.
