Draft minutes of the Barnham Parish Council held on Tuesday, 14th March 2017 in the village hall are posted on the Parish Council page and notes from the meeting held on 9th May will be posted soon. The next meeting of the Parish Council will be on Tuesday, 11th July at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.
NEW COUNCILLOR - Following the resignation of Councillor Ian Clark, the parish council would like to extend its thanks to Ian for his dedicated contribution and support for the village. Ian served for more than 30 years, many of those as chairman. The Parish Council is pleased to welcome Charles Merrifield as its new parish councillor (Charles' co-option was unanimously agreed at the parish council meeting on 14th March). Charles will also be a member of the Planning Committee.
General Election - will be on Thursday, 6th June 2017. Local polling station at Barnham Village Hall. See our News and Events page for details of candidates.
Road Works - w/c 15th May the road between the traffic lights on the A134 to the A1088 junction at Euston will be closed for repairs. It appears that there will be access to houses on the road. (householders should have received a letter about this).
Coming soon - new bus stop. Progress has finally been made in getting approval for a new bus stop on the opposite side of the road to the current one and work is due to start on 24th July 2017. The brick shelter will remain and will still be used but the new bus stop will enable passengers to alight safely from the opposite side of the road.
Reminder ... Don't forget it's really, really easy to report potholes, faulty lampposts, flooding etc. Just check out the Suffolk County Council website's home page
Barnham Parish Council Facebook Page. A facebook page has been set up and we will be using this as a virtual "Notice Board" for a couple of months to see if local residents are interested. Please contact any of the parish councillors or the clerk if you have any queries regarding this.
Village Life - Take a look at the News & Events page to see what is happening in the village - "The Link" is delivered to every house each month.
BT Payphone and kiosk - The parish council has now "adopted" the village telephone kiosk. Thanks to local residents who will be taking care of it.
Community Speedwatch - Barnham Parish Council's Community Speedwatch scheme is up and running - you may have seen them in the village by the church ... this will help to ensure that traffic through the village sticks to the speed limit. We have a number of volunteers already but are looking for more. The commitment will require a couple of hours per month and you will be fully trained by Suffolk Police. If you would like to take part please contact John Bauer on 01842 890093 or click here to email him.
