The Big Friendly Read!

“Last year, more than 6,700 children in South Gloucestershire took part in the Summer Reading Challenge, giving us the highest participation rate in the South West and a key element in the Time4Reading project. There is no other free reading activity that involves so many children, introduces families to their library, encourages children to choose books freely and independently and is endorsed by parents, teachers and the Department of Education.”

We’ve been notified that Wessex Water and their contractor Glanville will be carrying out surveys into the sewerage system across much of Charfield, during 25th – 28th July. Residents should receive letters week commencing 11th July. Operatives will hold ID cards which they will produce if they need access to your property. For any further information, Wessex Water contact details are available from the Parish Council.

May Full Council Meeting – Date Change

With fewer Councillors in post it is harder to achieve quorum in meetings. As such, we have decided to move the next full Council meeting from Tuesday 10th May to Tuesday 17th May. The venue and time remain unchanged, Charfield Memorial Hall, at 7.30pm, and as ever all are welcome.
