The Council Team

Your Parish Council is here to help you. If you have a problem or concern about something locally, just get in touch with the Parish Clerk and she will be able to advise you as to how you should proceed. It may be that it is something that the Parish Councillors can do or it may be that a particular issue needs to be raised with another body. Whatever the way forward, the Parish Clerk will be able to offer you advice. In the meantime, if you have something you’d like to tell the Parish Council about just contact the Clerk. The Clerk is available Monday to Thursday 9.00am to 4.00pm by phone or email. last updated:  02.11.19

 

Accessibility Standards and this Website

Accessibility

We are committed to making our site accessible to all.

Accessibility Standards and this Website

We are continuously improving this website to ensure that it meets the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines issued by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). The WAI website content guidelines, published in 2008 by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), are the globally used and accepted standard for website accessibility, by both the corporate and public sector.

https://www.w3.org/WAI/standards-guidelines/wcag/

This website has been developed to serve the largest possible audience, using the broadest range of systems and to consider any needs that users with disabilities might have.

For our part we're providing a site which has been designed and coded to achieve an AA level of compliance. To achieve an AAA level of compliance depends on the content and how it's written, and that is down to individual site editors to achieve. If the content is written correctly then the individual website might be able to achieve AAA level of compliance.

Accessibility Help - Change the way this website looks - Using tools on your computer

You can control the look and functionality of this website, depending on your computer settings. Most computers will have accessibility settings you can change including; the way the screen looks (e.g. changing; fonts, sizes, colours, etc), the way the keyboard or mouse works and possibly speaking and listening to commands as well as a range of other features.

As several organisations have already produced lots of very good content about how to make computers and websites more accessible, we have linked to these sites rather than duplicate their content.

My Web My Way produced by the BBC is a comprehensive site with loads of useful information and a wealth of accessibility links

Limitations of this site’s accessibility

While we’ve done a lot to ensure this site’s accessibility, you may find some limitations: –

  • Whilst we always aim to communicate clearly and as simply as possible, some of the content may require a reasonable level of technical understanding due to the nature of a Parish Council’s business and related governance procedures.
  • Whilst the site has been created using a well coded, professional content management system but the site has not been user-tested by those with a disability.
  • The site has been cross-platform and cross-browser tested and is currently compatible with modern browsers.

Downloadable files

Files have been made available to download in a variety of formats – the most common are Adobe Acrobat (.pdf), Microsoft Word (.doc and .docx) and Microsoft Excel (.xls and .xlsx). Reasonable adjustments have been made to ensure that digital publications available on our website are as accessible as possible. If you need any document in a different format, please contact us.

You may need to download Adobe Reader to view files in PDF format. The latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader has incorporated accessibility features. For example, you can hear a PDF document read aloud or scroll a PDF document automatically. You can access these features in the Edit Preferences menu.

Find out more about the free Adobe online conversion tool which converts the content of PDF files to HTML or text which can be understood by most screen reader applications.
