Parish Council – November 2023

Parish Clerk - We are saddened to announce that, after 15 years of sterling service, Chris Barron has decided to stand down at the next AGM in May 2024. We thank him for all the help and advice given and for all his outstanding work keeping SPC functioning.

We now seek a new Parish Clerk. If you are interested in the role, please contact Chris for a copy of the job description and maybe attend some PC meetings to get a flavour of what’s involved.

A Sink Hole - has appeared by the new drain close to Silver Street. Thankfully, prompt action by Greg Clapham and Chris Barron got the hole barricaded off by Highways Agency before anyone suffered. Thanks guys.

SPC Vacancy - we are still looking to co-opt another Parish Councillor. If you feel you can contribute to the benefit of the village, please send an expression of interest to the Parish Clerk.

Polling Stations - North Yorkshire Council is conducting a review of polling districts and polling places and would like to know your views. Please go to to take part until 13 November 2023.
