 Unveiling of Sired Way 


 To celebrate  47 years of public service John Sired, who retired from the council last year  had a road located in Kilnwood Vale named after him. This honour is throughly deserved. Not only has John been a Parish Councillor, he is also still a Church Warden and was the caretaker for Colgate Village Hall for many years. Congratulations John.
