Notice of District Election 3rd May 2018


Village Hall Improvements

Great Staughton Village Hall committee is delighted to announce we are the fortunate recipient of an Amey Cespa grant valued at £22,250. This together with money from the Parish Council, and a loan from the Friendship club will enable major improvements to be made to the hall with respect to its heating, insulation, doors windows, toilets and decorations.

The work will necessitate the closure of the hall and will take place from March 5th to March 25th 2018. All users will have to find alternatives during that period. The pavilion is available for use if possible on most nights of the week.

Any queries please contact Bob Jewell on 01480 861259 or or Vicky Goldsmith on or 07739469243.

Consultation regarding the Police Precept

The Commissioner is proposing to increase the policing part of the Council Tax by £1 per month per household – £12.00 per year (based on a Band D property).

The press release can be found on the website –

The survey itself can be found at –

Your opinion/views would be welcome. The consultation will be running until January 29th.

Do you want to have a say about your village?

Is there something you want doing?
Are you dissatisfied with the current Parish Council

This is your chance – Next May 2018 there will be the opportunity to elect a new Parish Council. This is open to all residents on the electoral roll in the Parish. Some current Councillors will stand for re-election but others may not and so some new blood will be welcome and indeed necessary.

The Parish Council on your behalf looks after the village hall, the playing field and pavilion, maintenance of the village as well promoting local road safety measures and making appropriate representations on planning, and other matters.

More detail will appear in subsequent articles but if you are interested, curious, or just wonder what it is all about – contact me, the clerk, or any of the Parish Councillors, all names in Life Magazine.
