Edenfield Village Residents Association
Minutes of meeting held on 15thMay, 2019, at 7.30pm
Chairman welcomed everyone and the minutes of the previous meeting were agreed. No matters arising.
It is likely that the Public Examination will now be late October. A Forum Newsletter has been distributed throughout the village and thanks were given to the Association for their help in this. It is hoped that the Newsletter will help to increase awareness of the Local Plan and raise funds for the Forum. It is thought that, even now, some people are unaware of the ongoing situation. It was agreed that the Newsletter gave an excellent visual impression of the proposed development and the huge impact this will have on the village.
A Stall and Tombola will be run at the Fete to raise awareness, canvass for membership and generate much needed funds.
A Raffle will be held at the Cricket Match on the 3rdJune. Donations for the Tombola, and Raffle, to be given to JM.
Posters will be displayed in the Village before Inspectors’ visit to keep people aware.
