Frank Reid

It is with deep regret that I have been asked to inform you that Frank Reid of Winward, Boughton, passed way at home earlier this morning.

I’d be grateful if you would inform friends and neighbours for whom I do not have mail addresses.

Frank was an enormous presence and friend to the village. He will be sorely missed. Let us all join together in supporting Sandy at this difficult time.

Annual Parish Meeting – 4th May 2021

The next meeting of the Parish Council will be held on 4th May at 7pm and on the same evening we plan to host the village Annual Parish Meeting at 7:30pm. This is an important public meeting, where priorities for the Parish Council are set. We would like to see as many residents take part as possible. It is not a Parish Council meeting, but a village meeting. There is no set agenda, but the Parish Council will submit a number of reports on the work we have been doing on your behalf, and we will have a chance to discuss how residents see the village developing, including the pond and playground.

As lockdown restrictions ease, it may be possible for the Annual Parish Meeting to be held in person, in the church, as it has been in years past. (It had to be cancelled last year for obvious reasons). It will need to be delayed a while yet, but we would like to hear your opinion on whether the meeting should be held in-person when we can, or should go ahead virtually in May.

Boughton Village Gateway Planters

Today we have deployed two new planters at the village gateway on Mill Hill Road to add a bit more colour to the approach to the village. These have been donated by Mrs Christine Matthew and the “Friends of Glancammarch Brewery” using funds raised at pre-pandemic social events. Thanks to all friends and neighbours who donated. Mrs M will look after them for us.

The plants are intended to be “deer proof”, but we will no doubt see what the Muntjac have to say about that. We have a secret ingredient in the compost to deter them!

Chair, Boughton Parish Council

New Councillor Co-Opted

I am pleased to confirm that Sarah Miller has been co-opted as a councillor for Boughton Parish Council. We looking forward to working with her.
