How Green Is Our Parish?

ANNUAL PARISH MEETING – Thursday 20th May, 6.30 pm, Station Road and Millennium Way junction

How “green” is your Parish? How can we make it greener? Your Parish Council already has plans to establish pollinator patches and areas of new tree planting in response to climate change concerns. We are asking residents to let us know what they think of these plans and whether they have other good ideas. We would also like your views on what other “green” initiatives might also be undertaken for the benefit of the Parish. Recycling? Energy? Sustainability?

One chance to have your say is the Annual Parish Meeting which this year will be held outdoors and will walk up to other parts of the parish including Beckside and Fell View and beyond. Councillors will be leading this meeting to talk about projects under way and, just as importantly, to hear your thoughts about what else might be done to tackle environmental issues. If you can’t attend the meeting, or have ideas beforehand, please contact Judy Powell on 01524 771154 or Mike Wright on 07807 816201.

Of course, the Parish Council is accountable for all expenditure and activity undertaken on behalf of residents. A full annual report and accounts will be published on the village website, displayed in notice boards, or available on request from the Clerk.
