King's Head Pub Meeting Deferred

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 14:28 by Samantha Hosking

KING'S HEAD PUB OPEN MEETING DEFERRED to Friday 23rd March 7pm Syresham Village Hall

The Parish Council have deferred the King's Head meeting to allow a potential community group, who have expressed interest, to meet and gather information before the open meeting. More »

The group would then be in a better position to share information with other interested residents and discuss options and plans for a community bid to purchase the King's Head pub.

In the meantime, if other community groups have formed and not yet registered their interest with the Parish Clerk, please do, so that the Clerk can ensure all parties are aware of each other and not duplicating effort.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused by the late change in date.

For more information or to register your interest in being part of a community group, please contact the Parish Clerk,

Immediate withdrawal of mobile library service

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 19:23 by Samantha Hosking

LibraryPlus Mobile Library Service – immediate withdrawal of service

The public consultation around the future of the Library Service has included the deletion of the Mobile Library Service and the service has been running as normal pending the final Council decision. More »

However, due to the age and the condition of the vehicle, there is a risk of incurring expensive repair work each time it goes out and the recent spending controls imposed by the Director of Finance under Section 114 mean that we have had to withdraw the service with immediate effect.

We will be contacting all existing Mobile Library customers individually to explain the situation.

We have also made arrangements for our Mobile Library Driver to continue to visit the mobile library stops for one last visit to see as many customers as possible. He will be stopping at the normal place at the normal time, but in a different vehicle, to collect stock from customers.

If customers are not able to attend the last mobile library visit they can return any items to any of our libraries. All overdue charges will be waived.

Any residents who would like to continue to use the library service, but are unable to visit their nearest library, can be considered for home delivery through our Library to You service. They can either speak to our mobile van driver at his last visit, or contact their nearest library for further details.

More information on a planned expansion of the Library to You service will be announced in due course.

If you have any further questions relating to the Mobile Library Service, please contact NLIS Feedback at NLISfeedback@firstforwellbeing.co.uk

Yours sincerely
