Brand new website
Now underway!

As you may have noticed, we’re currently in the process of updating the PC website.  This new version is the first re-design in several years and will (in time) contain a greater wealth of information for local residents. The site has also been re-designed to be more ‘mobile friendly’ whilst also incorporating the latest social media posts. This project is currently very much a ‘work in progress’ and content will be administered by several volunteers. Suggestions for the new site are very welcome. Please contact us to let us know if there are any areas you would like to see included!
