A response will be made to you in writing following the meeting. If you feel you must attend then you must wear a mask / face shield (unless medically exempt, this will be recorded), you must respect social distancing and not be experiencing any Covid symptoms.

Please report any faulty street lamps to email@example.com. Woodford Parish Council owns all of the lamps in the village and repairs can only take place if we know about the fault and authorise the repair. Once the Parish Clerk is aware of the fault the contractor will normally repair the lamp in about a week. All you need to report is the lamp number (if known), or the location/address. Please don't assume someone else has reported the fault. We'd rather have two reports than none.
Potholes, dangerous pavements and blocked drains/gullies within the village and all approach roads are handled by Street Doctor.
