New Councillor Surgeries for 2018

Councillor Surgeries

Following a number of requests from residents who attended our monthly meetings the Parish Council has decided to run a monthly surgery to see if this can improve resident to Councillor communication.

There are 4 confirmed dates as stated below and the surgeries will be held at the Parish Council office (red door to the right hand side and rear of the Memorial Hall) on a Saturday morning between 10am and 12pm:

Saturday January 20th

Saturday February 17th

Saturday March 10th

Saturday April 21st

If the surgeries are well attended and following a review it is likely these will be a regular feature of Council life. We will be issuing individual Council email addresses for each Councillor and more information on the website and in the Memorial Hall Foyer to allow residents to get to know who their Councillors are.

On this Parish Council website there is an option to subscribe to each update put on the website so residents can be alerted via their email to any new items being published. The website also contains the monthly Agenda and Minutes. We also have a Face book page which contains alerts to village issues, events and even utility alerts where possible.

Cremer’s Meadow is open to the public. The Friends group has been working extremely hard and fast to clear the meadow of junk and rubbish before allowing residents to access it and enjoy it to its full potential. The Meadow can be found by accessing a public footpath located opposite no 19 Blofield Road. The Meadow is through a wooden gate to the left only 25 yards down this lane. The leader of the group is Gill Buckley. Many thanks are owed to Mrs Shirley Cremer who is now the Patron of the Friends of Cremer’s Meadow who has given her blessing for the land to be bought. We have given her the Council’s assurance that the land will remain largely unspoilt and remain in public ownership. Anyone who would like to join the Friends group, please call Gill Buckley on 01603 717064.
