Arncott MotoX Inquiry Decision Notice
We have been asked a number of times for information regarding the inquiry decision on Arncott MotoX. Please click here for details and / or check out the Motox folder in the "Library" section.
The Parish Matters magazine is delivered in paper format through your door as we can no longer provide it in email format. This might seem like a step backwards but the advertisers were not keen on the email delivery format and the reduction in costs we gained by email delivery compared to paper delivery would have been swallowed up by the loss in advertising revenue, without which there wouldn't be a magazine at all. In light of this, we made the decision to go back to full paper delivery. If you don't receive a copy, please let us know. Refer to the "Library" section for previous issues of the magazine.
The village hall is desperately looking for new members to fill several positions. If you'd like to help, please contact us here.
Don't forget to make use of the shop in Arncott. Village shops are dying out as they struggle to compete against the supermarkets. Use it or lose it! There are loads of offers available there and as Tom once said to me, "If you can't find it, ask me and I'll find it. If I haven't got it, I'll get it". Can't say fairer than that!! If you want to contact the shop, then call 01869 388223 and speak to them. Here is their hygiene rating from the Scores on the Doors website in case you were wondering.
18 February 2018Litter pick and Rubbish Removal
Today some of the younger people in the village came together to remove the rubbish that has accumulated in the hedgerows and the bottom area of the playing field over the years. This project was a community lead project. It was not organised by the parish council at all. It was lead by a resident and a good number of our younger villagers. It was a fantastic job and over a tonne of rubbish has been removed to make the area so much better. We intend this to be the beginning of a longer project to improve the facilities in the village. Projects like this help improve our village for everyone and those involved gave their time freely to do this and for that, I think everyone in the village is impressed and we can only give our thanks to them. Once we have the names of those involved, we will put their names up to ensure they receive the proper recognition for a superb job, and a job from which everyone in the village will benefit.
05 January 2018Village Resilience
As you may know, the village purchased a generator a short while ago with a view to having a resilience programme in place for emergency situations. Setting up the programme is a lengthy process as nobody has had any training with regards to setting up or running anything like it. It's a learning curve for us all. We do need volunteers to help us when the programme is active. This is because we need a contact network, similar to a school's tree system for contacting parents of the children at a school. This will hopefully mean that we will have enough people to identify those at risk during the time the programme is active, and have ways to get to them, or get them to the village hall. The generator will be there for powering critical services in the hall, such as the heating, basic kitchen equipment, separate lighting rigs, etc. If you want to get involved, please email the parish council from the contact and & feedback section, and let us know your name, address, landline and/or mobile, and email address. In situations like power outages, many landlines don't work as they often require separate power sources, and mobile signals may not be good, and also internet access will be out, so we need to be able to get hold of you by several methods.
