Bachport's Giles Baxter gave an excellent update on the battle against the proposed gravel pit at the village open meeting. You can see the presentation slides on the Council Business page along with a summary in the open meeting minutes.
The village open meeting minutes are now available. From the recreation ground to the village hall, the bronze age to fusion future, the WI and speeding, villagers were brought up to date with all the activities currently going on in, around and for the parish. There were were presentations from the chairman, Chris Neill, as well as on traffic, the gravel campaign, the tennis and cricket clubs, the science centre, the school, the scouts, and more. The full minutes and notes from the meeting can also be viewed on the Council Business page.
The Parish Council has applied for and received permission to increase its membership to seven with two more members required right now. This is a very busy time for the Parish and it would not be too much of an exaggeration to say that, were it not for all the volunteers on the various groups both unsung (you know who you are) and high profile, the volume of work would be overwhelming.
So, the message is: your Council – your village – needs you!No particular expertise required, just enthusiasm and a desire to help. If you are interested please see Chris Neill in the Post Office or email the Clerk, Anne Davies at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Clifton Hampden's next home game is this Saturday, 23 May, against a mystery team of all stars (ok, it's "a touring side from Gloucestershire" apparently). More importantly, there's going to be a barbecue. Which means beer and stuff. Mainly beer. The bit that's not the cricket (beer, barbecue, stuff) kicks of at 1pm.
They would like to know numbers so, if interested, please email: email@example.com.
