If you missed the Annual Village meeting at The College Arms on 21st April, here are the slides presented by the Parish Council and a copy of the speech from the chairman.
It was a successful and well-attended meeting with residents enjoying cheese and wine in an informal atmosphere and appreciating an excellent presentation from Tim Hoskin of Sustainable Hertford Heath.
Good evening and welcome everyone to the Annual Village Meeting. For those of you who don’t know me I’m Suzanne Fogden, present chairman of the Parish Council.
We are happy that we are now able to hold this meeting in public after a break of 2 years. This is an opportunity for residents, representatives of village organisations and councillors to get together again and share information about what we do and what we enjoy about living in Hertford Heath.
Even though we haven’t been able to meet in public very often there are still many projects in the village that have been completed during this time. There are too many to list here, but I hope that you will have a look at our slide presentation and that you have enjoyed the results of our endeavours. I would also like to say a big thank you to all involved in making them happen. Our community has shown that it is still a strong one, with people caring and helping each other during the difficult times we’ve been through.
We have tried to keep people up to date on what’s been going on by the monthly Newsletters, our website, Facebook, the notice boards and Hertford Heath Online has just been launched with information about future events. Already I see that we can look forward to a busy summer in the village, including lots of events linked to the Queen’s Jubilee and I look forward to seeing many of you there. Fingers crossed for good weather.
Representatives from several organisations are here this evening so please have a chat with them to find out more about what they do. If anyone is interested in supporting the Parish Council there are councillors here who would be only too happy to talk to you about how you can become involved maybe with working groups or, dare I say it, joining them on the Council as we do have vacancies.
Thank you for coming and we invite you to have a glass of wine with us and I hope you enjoy the evening.
