The village is served by a pro-active Parish Council who are responsible for a number of amenities including playgrounds, village hall, burial ground and common lands.

The village also benefits from a primary school, doctors' surgery, church, 2 public houses, a shop, butchers and delicatessen and is home to numerous clubs, societies and sports facilities.
