Our next meeting is scheduled to be held at 7.30pm on Wednesday 10th February. Due to Covid-19, we will continue to hold meetings by Zoom. Details of this and how residents can join will be on the agenda, which is displayed on the council noticeboards (outside the Parish Room, outside Budgens, outside Jack Brand’s and on Masons Drive) and on our website and social media (details below). You can also contact the clerk to request the link.
Please consider joining a meeting with us, even if you haven’t used Zoom before. It is very easy and there is no cost to join. Everyone is welcome at council meetings, no matter how they are held, and there is a 15-minute public forum where you can ask questions or raise issues related to the work of the parish council.
As I write, there is no further news on Valley Ridge (formerly SnOasis) but as soon as more information becomes available, it will be posted on social media and in these articles.
We still have vacancies for councillors. If you would like to find out more, please join the next meeting to see what it’s all about or contact the clerk. Having more councillors means that the council is in a position to take on more projects, so please give it serious consideration.
Finally, I am sad to say that there has been vandalism of some of the things that the council owns in the village. The council provides these for the benefit of residents and to help make the village a better place in which to live, e.g. rubbish bins. They have been bought using council tax money and will have to be replaced at further cost. If you see any vandalism taking place, please report it to the police.
Stay safe and well in these difficult times. Thank you for reading this and for your interest in the work of your parish council.
Great Blakenham Parish Council Chairman, Steve Plume
