Transport We asked about the type and number of vehicles per household. Not surprisingly, the car is the predominant form of transport, with 280 respondents having at least one car; 176 have 2 cars and 21 have three. 93 respondents have at least one bicycle, 9 have a motorcycle. The majority of people who responded make one or two return journeys per day. Of those people travelling to work, 374 do so by car, 26 by bus and 21 by bicycle. 55% of people in the village travel more than 10 miles to work.

Quality of life Figure 7 shows people’s opinions on how the quality of life in the village has changed over the last ten years. 36% of respondents feel that life has improved, whilst 19% feel it has worsened. We can only hope that the issues identified and the actions proposed in the Parish Plan will lead to an improvement in quality of life for all.
