The Parish Council: will be holding their first meeting since the summer break this evening, Thursday, in the usual place – the Pavilion – at the usual time – 7.30 pm. I’m sure there will be plenty to catch up on as they have not met since the end of July. As always, a copy of the agenda will be posted on the notice board outside the Spar Shop or you should be able to download a copy from the Council’s website, www.slaughampc.co.uk. There will be an opportunity to ask questions or raise any queries about items on the agenda early in the meeting. The meeting will then be followed by the Planning Committee’s meeting where again questions can be asked or concerns raised about any item or planning application on the agenda. Both these meetings are open to the public in order that we can see what those people we have elected to the Council are doing on our behalf, so if you are not happy with the way things are going, take yourself along to the meeting this evening, and put your point forward! Better yet, I am aware that more councillors are needed so if you feel you could do better or just want to see what goes on at the meetings before deciding whether or not to sign up, take yourself along to the meeting this evening. If you can’t make the meeting but would like to know how you can become a councillor, get in touch with Sally McLean, the Parish Clerk on 01403 733881, or email her at clerk@slaughampc.co.uk.

Macmillan Coffee morning: As promised last week the Macmillan Coffee Morning tomorrow, Friday, is being held in The Old Clubhouse on the High Street (opposite the Recreation Ground) between 10.30 am and 2.30 pm. In addition to coffee (obviously!) you will be able to get a cup of tea if you are not a coffee drinker, a selection of cakes, take part in a sweepstake and buy a raffle ticket or 5 and participate in some games! If you are unable to attend but would like to make a donation of either a cake or some money, get in touch with Chris Rotheray (400043) or Barbara Butfoy (401706). Why not go along with your friends and make new friends whilst supporting a very worthwhile charity.
