There has been some suggestion that the Parishes of Yealand Redmayne and Yealand Conyers could merge. There will be a Question and Answer meeting, to be held on Monday 10th September 2018, at 6.00pm in the Village Hall. All are welcome to attend and and hear the possible implications. If you cannot attend, please contact your Clerk or Parish Chairperson, if you wish a question to be answered. We look forward to seeing you there.
