The site presents some date in tables. Village hall hiring prices are in a table. This would be difficult to do in another way.

Meeting info, i.e. date, time, venue, agenda, other docs and minutes are presented in a table. Not sure this is appropriate

Will investigate ARIA landmarks

Will investigate if meeting tables could be done in a more appropriate way
