We are now back to face to face meetings following the Government’s refusal to extend the legislation to enable Parish Councils to continue to meet virtually.
The next Parish Council meeting will take place at Launton Parish Hall, Bicester Road, Launton (next door to the Primary School) on Wednesday 21 July at 7.30pm. The car park is to the rear of the hall.
In order to comply with the Hall requirements we should be grateful if you could wear a mask when moving around in the building. The seating will be kept distanced and there is hand sanitiser provided. However, you will not have to wear masks while seated. Please enter via the front double doors.
The Agenda for the meeting together with the Minutes of the May meeting are available with the meeting papers on the Parish website at https://www.caversfieldpc.org.
We’ll look forward to welcoming you next week at Launton Parish Hall.
Following the resignation of Eleanor Booth-Davey, there are now two vacant seats on the Parish Council.
One can be filled at the meeting on 21 July and the other is likely to be available for the September meeting – once we have received confirmation that an election isn’t required.
The Parish Council needs Councillors in order to function.
The Parish Council is the village’s voice on planning and we also have a liaison role with the MoD and the various management companies and groups around the village. With fewer Councillors, it is much harder to make the village’s voice heard.
There may even come a time, if villagers are not interested in putting themselves forward, that the Parish Council will have no option but to merge with another area.
Please think about whether you can help. See the information on becoming a Councillor page and join us on 21 July
YOUR VILLAGE NEEDS YOU!
