Annual Parish Assembly
Thank you to the many of you who gave up your evening to come along to the Annual Parish Assembly last week.  It was good to meet you and very useful for Members to be able to chat over a drink after the meeting to find out your views and thoughts.  A big thank you to those amongst you who spoke on behalf of local organisations, and a particularly to Peter Roberts for his enjoyable and informative talk on the history of Forest, and Friends of the New Forest.  I certainly learnt a lot and I am sure others did to.

The Minutes of the Annual Parish Assembly have been prepared in draft, subject to approval at the 2018 Assembly.  As that is some time to wait, I attach the draft Minutes for your information.  adobe icon Draft Minutes of the Annnual parish Assembly 2017 [29kb]

My apologies to those of you who were not able to take a hard copy of the papers home.  I am afraid based on last year I rather underestimated the number of attendees.  I attach the unaudited year end accounts, Report from Sharon Barnett of Neighbourhood Watch, Report from National Grid and the approved 2016 Annual Parish Assembly Minutes. adobe icon 2016.17 Year End Unaudited Accounts [216kb]  adobe icon Neighbourhood Watch Report 2017 [1Mb]  adobe icon National Grid Report 2017 [205kb] adobe icon Minutes of the Annual Parish Assembly 2016 [193kb]
