Vacancy on Parish Council

Notice of vacancy

There is a vacancy on the parish council following the sad death of John Bean.

John was a well known and active resident of the village for many years and he was always first in line to help with village events and activities involving the church, village hall and the parish council.  He sat on the parish council for over twenty years and took the lead on issues involving highways, bridleways and drainage with the county council. He also drew up the plans for the graveyard extension and put in countless hours preparing and seeding the ground and overseeing the fencing.  He also set up the neighbourhood watch scheme.

John will be greatly by everyone on the parish council and our thoughts are with Muriel, his widow.

The attached document gives notice of the vacancy and sets out how the vacancy will be filled.

The next Parish Council meeting will be held on 23 November at 7:00pm in the village hall.  Everyone is welcome to attend.

The agenda will available on the Parish Council section of the website.  One topic for discussion is the possibility of further traffic calming measures in the village; specifically, implementing a 20mph speed limit and participating in the community Speedwatch scheme (volunteers using a speed gun to monitor traffic speed).  The attached note gives a little more information on both topics.

The Parish Council is keen to obtain views from villagers on both of these initiatives:  if you have any feedback please come to the meeting, respond to this note or contact a parish councillor directly.
