Parish Council Meetings
We will be holding the Annual Meeting of the Parish Council in the Village Hall on Tuesday 2nd May at 7.30 pm. Please click here to view the Agenda. We hope that as many as possible of you will join us for nibbles and a glass of wine, to hear what we have been doing in the past year and our plans for the next. It will be your opportunity to meet and question your councillors, to see a video about our new defibrillator and to hear of our progress on Broadband.
The minutes of our previous meeting on 22nd March can be found here.

Please note that we now have a page for Police Alerts, which are all very practical and frequently updated. Do keep an eye on them!
Welcome to St James'
Please click here for welcome!
Thanks greatly to the fundraising efforts of Cllr Burch, the parish council has now purchased and installed a defibrillator to the outside of the village hall.
We have recently had the Phone box at Crux Easton re-painted and cleaned and it looks fantastic!
Well attended celebrations for the Queen's 90th Birthday
We have for some time been concerned at the risk to our most widespread tree from Ash Dieback Disease, so the Woodland Trust kindly came to visit us on 7th November bringing hundreds of saplings for us to plant, both potentially to replace trees that may not last for many years and also hedging and other small trees. This was hugely popular, especially with the children who planted around 100 metres of hedging at the recreation ground on a wet and windy day! Many thanks to Prue Rankin and others for organising this event, including an excellent lunch.
Ashmansworth & District Horticultural Society
Our long established society now has a website giving details about itself and its events.
Please support this monthly event which helps to provide funds for the Village Hall. See Events Calendar for next date.
We hope to be able to re-launch Zumba or another class sometime. If you have any ideas about an exercise class that might be popular please contact Mike Sarson (01635 250533).
Your parish council is often asked how we judge planning applications. We don’t
approve them, but give local advice to Basingstoke. We have written our own new guidance document which we will use to evaluate applications.
The new Parish Council planning guidelines are now complete. and may be viewed here
We are asked to lend our support to the IF campaign. Click here to read all about it!
