Neighbourhood Watch – It has been reported that there have been several break-ins where farm equipment and horse equipment have been stolen. A number plate was also taken. Parishioners need to be vigilant.
SCDC Three Free Trees Scheme – SCDC are offering every Parish Council in South Cambridgeshire three free trees.
Precept – The Parish Council at their meeting on 13 January 2020 agreed to increase the Precept by £1,000 to £26,000. This is an increase of £1.90 for a Band D property. We have been advised that it is prudent to increase it slightly each year to help cover any unexpected costs.
SCDC Energy Efficiency Grants – If there are homes which need improvements in energy efficiency, there are grants available which are means tested. Grants are also available for Council houses. There are 200 houses in SCDC which are at level G which is the worst level.
