We are saddened to report that our Chairman, Mike Palmer, passed away on 5th June after battling with cancer for the last two years. Mike joined the Parish Council in November 2007, becoming Vice-Chairman in 2010 and leading the Council as its Chairman from May 2012. He made a substantial contribution to the work of the Council, developing it from a small group of individuals into a professional, active local authority working for the benefit of its residents. Mike led several major projects, perhaps the most significant being the re-building of the parish hub which included developing and updating the Stanton Suite, new public toilet facilities and a purpose-built office for the Parish Council staff. He was also responsible for the refurbishment of both the village stocks and war memorial and played an active role in highways and policing matters. In 2017 he led the Council in its delivery of the Parish Plan, in which can be found his vision for improving the village centre and creating a hub of facilities for all residents. Mike's ill health did not hold him back, continuing his inspirational work until the last few days. He will be sorely missed, and his colleagues and friends on the Parish Council are determined to take his vision through to completion.

Taking your car to France?

Taking your car to France?

Few people will be aware that the French government has introduced a requirement that all vehicles entering specified departments, cities and towns, must carry an Air Quality Certificate (Crit'Air) sticker on their windscreens. Failure to display the sticker appropriate to your vehicle can carry an on-the-spot fine of £60. Paris is one such city…

Find your car's emission standard (1-6) on the RAC website https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/advice/emissions/euro-emissions-standards/ and then read the details of the French requirements on this website https://www.certificat-air.gouv.fr/en/ They are worth worth checking out. More »

One caution: They require a digital image of your vehicle's Registration Document, but as it must be no bigger than 400Kb, you will have to either send a low-quality photograph, or a zipped file. The image appears to be necessary only to prove that the vehicle is registered to you - they won't have to be able to read the details!

You should allow 30 days between applying and receiving the sticker through the post.

Bonne route! » Less
