Good news and bad!
The good news - At the Parish Council meeting on Monday 9 May the Council co-opted resident Heidi Stone to the position of Parish Councillor. (to replace Cllr Davenport Jones)
Heidi brings a wealth of experience to the role from her work as Deputy Director with the Crown Commercial Service, the UK’s largest public procurement organisation and as such is well sighted on many of the issues and challenges that face Local Governments across the UK.
Prior to this, Heidi ran her own consultancy for three years and before that had a successful career in sales and marketing. She is also an experienced project manager and a member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
Heidi is keen for the village to have a Neighbourhood Plan and the Council welcome her expertise and enthusiasm.
The bad news is that we have received the resignation of Cllr Jill Crouch who is moving out of the area.
Jill has been incredibly supportive of conservation and wildlife matters, encouraging villagers to take more interest in the village flora and fauna and she will be sorely missed by all on the Council.
Having filled one vacancy we now have another so please do get in touch if you are interested in being co-opted onto the Council.
