Don’t forget that the Parish Council meets this evening in the Pavilion on the Recreation Ground from 7.30 pm. This meeting, and the following meeting of the Planning Committee, are open to all members of the public and there is an opportunity to raise questions/queries on any item on the agenda. Copies of both agendas are posted on the various notices boards around the village and parish and can be found on the Parish Council’s website, www.slaughampc.co.uk.

As much as I hate to admit it, the countdown to Christmas has started with many of the supermarkets starting to stock Christmas fare in various shapes and forms. If you, or an organisation you are a member of, are planning an event in the coming months, do let me know and I will mention it here. Please let me have the information well in advance if at all possible but at the latest, by the Thursday before you would like it to appear in the paper.
