Dear All

I will start this month with a gentle reminder that our Annual General Meeting will be held on Friday 20th October at 7.30pm in the Free Church. Nominations for membership of the Executive Committee are still open and we do have a vacancy for a Secretary. Dr Tim Reed is willing to remain a committee member but is no longer able to continue as Secretary because the nature of his work is changing. 

I’m pleased to say the other existing committee members are happy to continue but we will be pleased if a few more members come forward. 

After the AGM I will give my view on Huntingdonshire District Council’s Local Plan to 2036. My talk is called The Local Plan and the Four R’s.

Before we get to our AGM, St Ives in Bloom have invited our members to their AGM next Monday 9 October at 7.30pm in the Corn Exchange. The meeting will include discussion on the coming year’s work and their priorities for St Ives in Bloom.

On a different topic I’ve been made aware of the problems some people living in the surrounding villages are now having difficulty making appointments to fit in with the reduced bus services. If your doctor has advised you of a time for your influenza clinic, and that is not suitable, you can make alternative arrangements with some Chemists. Lloyds in St Ives certainly offer this service.

Dear All,

A few weeks ago I wrote and stated I did not expect to write again before September but HDC have a consultation open on the Huntingdonshire Local Plan to 2036. This is the document the council will use to guide their approach to the planning requirements of the district for the next 20 years.
The Town Council have decided to hold an open meeting to air some of the main points of the plan as they affect St Ives. The Society has offered to help advertise the meeting. The Town Council have requested that HDC provide their presentation.
The meeting is at 7pm this Wednesday in the Corn Exchange. I apologise for the short notice but hope you will be able to attend, you will have the opportunity to guide both the Society's and the Town Council's submissions to the consultation.

Kind regards
