In February Linda Porter-Cohen resigned from the Parish Council. Linda has been a councillor for 7 years, and has contributed much to the work of the Council during that time. In addition, she has also represented the Parish Council on the Village Hall committee. I am grateful to her for her contribution, and will miss her at our meetings.
In accordance with the statutory procedures, the consequent vacancy on the Parish Council was advertised, and Wendy Parsons has put her name forward. She will formally be co-opted onto the Parish Council at the next meeting, on 24 June. However it should be noted that the current Council was elected for four years in May 2011, and so will be up for re-election in a year’s time. At that point there will be further vacancies on the Council, and so we would be very interested to hear from anyone who thinks they could support the village by serving as a Councillor. Please apply to the parish clerk, Sally Hughes, for more details: tel no 720915. E-mail: Sally Hughes [chippenhamparishcouncil@hotma
In the meantime, we are very pleased to welcome Wendy to the Council.
James Broad Chairman of the Parish Council
