Car parking in the village square
In order to protect the stone wall at the back of the parking area in front of the Black Horse, the trees in the pub garden are currently being removed and will be replaced by planting further back. This may mean that some of the usual parking area will be unavailable for a time. Once the trees have been removed, the wall will be reinstated in its former position. Work is likely to last until early December, but in the meantime, residents are reminded that additional parking is available on the reacreation ground.
