Our problem is, is that we have no facilities at all! No footpaths, no lighting and no facilities that the local council usually take care of! The church is looked after by its own volunteers and our village hall has its one committee. The road is the only obvious thing, besides the rubbish collection, that is taken care of by the council!
If there wasn't the 'Sword of Damocles' hanging over us with reference to the precept, I think it would be a done deal. Unless, of course, there is something in the background I am totally unaware of!
Thank you again for your continued comments.
