There was a good turnout for the Parish Council meeting last week with, I would imagine, many attending hoping for news on the Hyde/Hallam Recreation Ground/Warren Cottage Field issue. Unfortunately, there isn’t anything to report other than the discussions are ongoing and I will update you as and when I hear anything further. What did come out of the meeting is that Handcross needs another person on the Parish Council! Unfortunately, earlier in the year at the time of the election a few members stood down and no one has stepped up to the mark to replace them! If this is something you think you might be interested in doing, please contact Sally Mclean, the Parish Clerk, who will be able to explain all that is involved; her phone number is 01403 733881 or email clerk@slaughampc.co.uk. By being a member of the Parish Council you have an opportunity to represent the parish on issues that affect everyone at local and district level but there are no qualifications required to be a member, but it does help if you are ‘community minded’ as the saying goes I believe!
