Parish Plan Questionnaire

A small committee of villagers has been meeting regularly over the past six months to discuss the idea of creating a Parish Plan to help guide the future development of the Parish of Rampton.

To this end, we have compiled a short questionnaire which will be distributed to every household within the next month. There will be a separate adult and child questionnaire with a prize draw for each. It will also be possible to complete the questionnaire online.

Your Village Hall Needs You!

There are vacancies on the Village Hall Management Committee for anyone who would like to be involved in the up keep and running of the hall. The Committee, which meets on the forth Monday of each month, is made up of representatives from village organisations and elected members. We aim to have a maintenance morning once a month to carry our various jobs ranging from cleaning out gutters, raking leaves, cleaning walls etc which makes sure that our hall continually looks at its best.

The Committee is also responsible for organising refurbishment of the hall as required. For larger projects this involves applying for grants and other external funding. This summer the toilets will have a make over and the whole hall will be decorated inside and out. The work is not carried out by the Committee but by external contractors.

If you are interested and would like further details please contact Alison Bateson on alisonjbateson@nullgmail.com, tel: 01954 208045.
