Parish Wardens & Helpers

Parish Wardens are volunteers who help the Parish and the Parish Council.

Archaeology Warden: Mr A J Holmes
The County Council used to consult Archaeology Wardens when planning applications involved land in Archaeological Alert Areas [we have these in both villages] which might uncover or affect archaeological remains. Leics CC no longer makes this arrangement.

Heritage Wardens: Cathy Schou & Kate Moore

These wardens are appointed by the County Council to help establish heritage projects, especially those involving local wildlife. They keep in touch with the Leicestershire Local Access Forum. The forums represent interests on public rights of way and countryside access and cover the interests of walkers, cyclists, horse-riders, runners, climbers, landowners, farmers, environmental & conservation groups, people involved in tourism, disabled & disadvantaged groups and public transport users.
