This meeting is the annual opportunity for local council electors to speak and to discuss issues of relevance to the parish. Please note that this is not a Parish Council meeting and therefore is not a decision-making forum.
The Parish Council hope you have been enjoying the pop up café at the Village Hall, being run by Cllr Maureen Addy and her husband Bob.
They have both give their time freely to run the café, so pop down and say hello! It is open between 11am to 4pm on Thursday 25th, Friday 26th and Sunday 28th April. The café is not open on Saturday. The café sells tea, coffee, sweets, chocolate, ice cream and crisps. Perfect for refuelling after using the recreation field, new play equipment, zip line, outdoor gym and multi games court!
You can also view information about current Parish Council projects and how you can get involved!
The Council’s contractor, Sutcliffe Play Ltd, will begin work on the new pathways around the recreation ground on Tuesday 23rd April. The paths will be gravel and provide a circular route around the recreation ground.
The work will start at the top of the field, away from the play equipment, until the holidays have finished. The work should take around three weeks to complete.
There will also be some new bike racks installed at the Village Hall end of the field.
You can view a plan of the new pathways by clicking the link below.

Date 9 April 2019
Dodderhill Parish Council have agreed to increase their share of the Council Tax by 35% to £49.47 per year for a Band D taxpayer.
This sounds like a lot, but in real terms is just a 25p per week increase to allow the Council to insure and maintain the fabulous new facilities at the recreation ground and to build up a small fund to replace/enhance the equipment in the future. This comes after years of council tax freezes and is still well below the national average parish charge of £64.05.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact the Parish Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
