Events

It is lovely to see so many villagers at the various events in the village this year. Support is greatly appreciated by all the people who work hard to put on these events.

Allotments

The allotment on Low Street that has been dug over is to be levelled & reseeded. It will still be available for rent. If you are interested please contact the Parish Clerk.

Defibrillator

The Parish Council would like to thank everyone who has donated towards the defibrillators. These are now installed at the village hall & at the Foston phone box. If you have not already received the code for the defibs please contact a parish councillor or the parish clerk or the White Swan.

Council Agendas & Minutes

You will now find all the Parish Council agendas and minutes for 2016 on this website. It is the intention that Council Policy documents will also be available to view on the website.
