A recent article from the cider press by andy Booth

Why on earth would anybody want to get involved with their Parish Council? It must be a real pain having to constantly sit in interminable meetings?

The truth is those meetings aren’t nearly as constant and interminable as you might imagine. Even on the rare occasions when you’re not exactly chomping at the bit to trek out and join your fellow councillors; more often than not you come away with a feeling of invigoration and engagement that enhances your whole outlook on life and the goings on in the community of Putley.

Some of you will detect a modicum of PR here and you would be right as we are lucky enough to have not one, but two, places available for residents of the community to put themselves forward and sit on their local parish council – you just need to have been a resident for at least a year to be eligible.

Seriously, it is not an onerous task, and you will be surprised by how much you get out of the feeling of serving your community. Please do consider putting yourself forward and contact our Parish Clerk, Chrissie Daniels if you would like to discuss anything prior to putting your name forward. You can email Chrissie at: putleyclerk@gmail.com

Meetings are generally once every two months with a typical meeting lasting around 60 to 90 minutes. We are more often than not joined by our Herefordshire Council Three Crosses Ward Councillor Jonathan Lester who provides an update on all the major issues affecting our village and the county more widely. Topics that crop up regularly are items like roads, footpaths, rights of way and planning applications as well as emergency plan provision. Putley Parish Council also maintains the Putley village website (www.putley.org.uk) which is crammed full of information for reference and is kept regularly updated. This is another area where someone joining the council could usefully contribute some fresh ideas on the look and content.

In addition, the council also maintains the defibrillator located at the village hall car park with the help and generous assistance of Kay Harris. We recently paid for new CPRD Pads and batteries to ensure that all is kept in working order before the expiry of their ‘shelf life’.

Please think about joining us.

Here’s wishing you all a peaceful, blessed Christmas and a happy and fulfilling New Year.
