After 30+ years, Roger Gunnett has retired as a Parish Councillor. He has done so much for the Parish over much longer than his 30 years as a Councillor, and the Parish Council thanked him for his service at their meeting on Monday. He will continue to organise the Friends of Holcot who look after the village, and a couple of other ongoing projects.
As a consequence, we have a vacancy for a Parish Councillor. The initial term is expected to be for one year (elections are due in May 2020).
A statutory notice will appear in another post. If you are interested in joining the Council, please write a short note to Lisa Callan (firstname.lastname@example.org) stating your reasons for becoming a Councillor. Subject to there being no requirement for an election, the Council will consider co-opting a candidate at their May 20 meeting.
If you would like to talk to me about the role, please call me on 781660 – or come and have a chat at our drop-in event on 26 April at 6:30pm in the pub. Alternatively speak to any Councillor.
Again, sincere thanks to Roger for everything he has done.
This year’s Annual Parish Meeting will be held on 20 May in the Church Room. The meeting will start at 6:30pm, with the agenda (to be published shortly) including reports from the Parish Council, District and County Councillors.
It will be followed by the Annual General Meeting of the Parish Council (not before 7pm) and the May meeting of the Parish Council.
Lisa, as Parish Clerk, is now looking after the tennis court on behalf of the Parish. If you don’t know, the Parish has a tennis court at the cricket ground above the reservoir, which all parishioners can use for a few pounds per year.
