Welcome to our newsletter giving news from Box Parish Council for the month of . . .


At the Full Council meeting on the 28th June, we agreed the reports for the new changes in G.D.P.R. and adopted our new Standing Orders. 

Co-option for Box Hill Ward.  We would like to welcome our new councillor for the Box Hill Ward, Cllr. Robert Davies.  Robert lives in Rudloe and has a good knowledge of the common.  We look forward to him joining us. 

Newsletter.  Cllr. Whitford proposed a monthly newsletter, after discussion it was agreed to do a quarterly newsletter, the first one will be out by the end of July/beginning of August.  It will go on the Parish web page, in the shops and some will be delivered.  The newsletter will contain short reports from the sub-committee chairmen, and other councillors.  We would be grateful to have feed-back from you once you have read it.  I.e. is it worthwhile, what items you want to hear about? Etc please email or write into Margaret our clerk.

Works completed. You may have noticed that the railings by the fountain and outside of the parish office have been painted. 

In Progress. The Blind House pillar we are waiting for the report from the stone mason and acceptance of materials from WC then it can be repaired.  This is urgent and will be done as soon as possible.

Work for July.  The bench in Ashley will be repaired, the seat in the bus shelter by the Wharf replaced and the gates into the Pound treated.

The working party for Lacy Wood was postponed following expert advice, the new date will be announced in September.

Changes to Household Waste Recycling.  WC have announced changes from 31st July to the items that can be recycled in your blue lid bin and black box.   For the full report check out the parish web page <HERE>, we will also put posters up on the parish notice boards.

Lastly I would like to thank Cllr Stewart Barnes for the wonderful work he did as chairman.  I look forward to the coming year and its challenges as your new PC chairman.
