Annual Parish Meeting 2024

It was fantastic to see some of our residents at the Holmes Chapel Annual Parish meeting held on 19th March at the Community Centre.

Following a warm welcome from our Chair, Cllr Chris Jackson, 4 representatives from the Holmes Chapel Youth Council - Marcus, Amber, Charlie and Brianna - shared an update about what they had been working on. It was fantastic to listen to these enthusiastic and passionate young people talk about why they wanted to be part of the Youth Council, what they had achieved so far, their hopes for the future and some of the challenges they face as young people living in our Village.

Lucie Ferneyhough, Community Development Officer for Cheshire East Council, then talked about her role and the support Cheshire East is able to provide to residents, community and faith organisations in Holmes Chapel. She share about a new initiative called the Connected Communities Noticeboard where businesses can offer services such as volunteer hours and community groups can access extra support.

Cllr John Clowes shared about an initiative being led by the Parish Council called 'Reclaim the Pavements'. He talked about the aim of the Parish Council to make pavements safer for pedestrians through the cutting back of vegetation to make them wider for users and to prevent streetlights being blocked out. He shared how a small team has been surveying the streets of Holmes Chapel and writing to households where vegetation is impeding the footpaths. It's been a positive campaign so far and once the bird nesting season is over, another survey will be carried out.

Cllr Chris Jackson, our current Chair, rounded off the evening with his Chair's report updating residents on the work carried out by the Parish Council over the last year, which included the two very successful village-wide events of the Coronation Lunch and Summer Celebration. He also talked about the advocacy we have carried out on behalf of residents including strongly opposing the proposed introduction of car park charges. Click here to view the latest Annual Report.

Thank you to all those who attended to support this event and we look forward to seeing you next year!
