Village Open Event

Village Open Event

On Saturday 12th January, the Community Council will be holding and open event in the Village Hall on from 10.00am – 12.00 noon where members of the steering group and Steering Group members will be available to talk to you about the village plan and answer any questions you may have. The plan document will also be able to be viewed on line and we will publish a link where you can find it shortly.

As well as the Village Plan document we will be launching the NEW Higher Kinnerton website with new opportunities for village organisations, local businesses and residents. If you want to find out more how the website can help you reach a wider audience then we would encourage you to come along.

Through the village survey many residents indicated they would be interested to be part of a volunteer group to help with tasks in and around the village. The list of tasks is an open one and we welcome everyone’s suggestions. Just a few ideas to start with .

  • We will need help on some maintenance tasks in Park Avenue play area as well as creating a wildlife area.
  • Bennett’s Lane corner is an area we wish to improve and make it a centre of the village.
  • We need volunteers to help the Community Council plan and organise the 2019 village events as well as assistance on integrating the Village plan into the Community Council long term plan.
  • Can you contribute a regular article to the newsletter? We now have an eight page newsletter so additional contributions are welcome.

There were other suggestions too numerous to mention in this edition but we want to hear from you what you think you can help with.

This part of the event will start at 10.00 am so you have time to see and hear all the other activities taking place, click here to see full details

The Community Council will also be on hand holding an open surgery where you can come and discuss any local issues you may have. If it’s not a local issue we can probably point you in the direction of the people who may be able to assist you.

January is also the month when the Community Council sets its budget for the following financial year. Council members will share the budget highlights with you.

Higher Kinnerton Community Council strives to be open council available to all village residents and share our plans with you and  hear what you have to say so please come along and join the discussion. If this type of event proves to be well supported we will plan to run similar events in the future.
