In October 2007 the Parish Plan Committee was convened as an advisory group to the Parish Council. The eight members ranged in age from 28 to over 80, two were Parish Councillors and all aimed to represent the interests of the whole village community. During 2007 there were several requests in Village Newsletters asking for people to help in the production of a Parish Plan. All those who responded then, and later at the time of the first questionnaire, are now members of the advisory group.
The plan was first published in August 2009 and was formally reviewed in 2014/5. An updated plan was printed and distributed round the village in April 2015.
If you feel that a section of the village is under-represented, have suggestions for further projects and would like to offer help to develop them please contact Janet on 850517, any Parish Councillor or any Parish Plan committee member.
Committee members will continue to talk to different age groups of people and hoping to note positive messages as well as concerns. Please let us know about any skills you can offer. If you have any old or particularly interesting photographs or records of the village please look them out – they will be treated with the greatest care if you are willing to entrust them to us. As we consider how the village might develop in the future we need to take a nostalgic but realistic look at how it evolved in the past and we plan a social event In April to display our findings.
Contact either Janet Powell 850517 or Nicky Wheeler 850200 for more information.
