Parish election – call for candidates

Our Clerk has been sent the following email from Torridge’s Returning Officer for the looming May elections.   It calls for more nominations.  Please think about this yourself or consider approaching anyone you think should stand.

Just a reminder that the deadline for nominations is 4pm on Thursday 9 April.

At today’s date, we have not received as many nominations as expected. Given that we have Easter within this timetable and that nominations need to be hand delivered, can I just ask you all to submit nomination papers earlier rather than later please? This will make it easier for Paula Hunter and her team (who will be available during normal office hours, 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday) to accept nomination papers and check that they are correct. If the team is deluged with last minute submissions, it makes it more difficult to rectify any mistakes/omissions.

Village hall survey February 2015

The Buckland Brewer Village Hall Committee/Trustees need up to date information on how you use the existing hall, and how you would use a new one – we want to hear how much you need it.

Please would you spare five minutes (honestly, no more) to complete the tick-sheet questionnaire that’s coming through your letter box in the next two weeks. It will be collected after a few days, or you have the option of leaving it outside your house (a collection day will be given on the form).

If you have any ideas about new clubs you may want to set up, or “hall-based” activities you would like to see that are not on offer at the moment (maybe you would like to have a go at organising it), now is your chance.

Thank you for your contribution.

The Village Hall Committee.
