Please come to our Annual Parish Meeting - this Friday

8 May 2023

You are invited to Hacheston's Annual Parish Meeting from 7.30pm on Friday, to hear reports from village groups and raise items you would like the Parish Council to discuss at future meetings. 

We would also like to hear your ideas of how we could spend CIL money that we've received from recent development in the village. Would you be in favour of an outdoor gym near the playing equipment? Would you use an outside table tennis table? Have you any other projects you would like to see happen in Hacheston? Please let us know either at the meeting or by replying to this email.

We will be providing nibbles at the Parish Meeting- with vegan and gluten-free options available. We hope that our newly elected green Ward Councillor, Sally Noble, will be able to attend and we invite you to come along and meet her and hear her ideas. The bar will be open after the meeting and you are all most welcome to join us for a drink or two and chat informally with your Parish Councillors and parish clerk. 

If you would like to be co-opted as a Councillor, please get in touch or come to our next Parish Council meeting on Friday at 7pm (before the Parish Meeting). We would love to hear from you and to fill our vacancies. It is not a big role as we only normally meet 6 times a year. With 3 vacancies on the Parish Council and a newly elected Ward Councillor, it's an interesting time to get more involved in the village and help shape its future.
