We are very pleased to say that Katie Hauser from Warcop has applied to become our new Parish Councillor following John Heron stepping down. Her appointment will be confirmed at our September meeting and we are looking forward to working with her in our aim to improve our community as much as possible and to represent the views of residents across a range of issues.

However, we are sad to see thet Georgie Fell is stepping down as a councillor as she is expecting her first baby and is finding it hard to balance her work and home commitments. We thank her for all her excellent work and hope that she will return to the council at some point in the future.

Anyone who is interested in becoming a Parish Councilor should contact me on 41390 or the Clerk, Heidi Strong, on 41102.

David Keetley
