The Plan Document

In 2008 after about 2½ years of preparation including some very detailed consultation, the Parish Plan Steering group was able to provide the villages of Flitton and Greenfield with a Parish Action Plan. This document was adopted by the Parish Council in July 2008 and this has helped them plan their actions and expenditure.

 The document has been regularly reviewed by the Parish Council , including a 2015/16 revision, so that it acknowledges those actions which have been completed, highlighted those that need to be moved forward whilst also adding new ideas and actions. These reviews and consultations will continue to be done on an annual basis to in order to help the Parish Council focus on the needs of both villages.

Telephone Box Library

Tel lib

In Flitton, we have been lucky enough to acquire the old red telephone box and turn it into a 'small' community library. It is located next to the Church hall and is easily accessible.

All books are donated and we are always looking for more. Borrowing books is free and on trust, we do like to keep the supply up, so we like borrowers to return after reading or donate other titles.

There is a shelf of children's books and the whole library is kept in order regularly.
