Recognising the potentially devastating effects these proposals could have on Charfield specifically, there is a meeting for parishioners on Tuesday 6th December at 19:30 in the village hall, where the Parish Council and Ward Councillor will offer thoughts as to why if and how we should respond to the consultations.
The Grounds Maintenance Contract for 2017-2019 for Charfield Parish Council is now open for tender. All tenders should be submitted by 17.00 hrs on 30th December 2016 in the format requested. All queries should be directed to the Clerk, Mrs. Paula Evans at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us in a Service of Remembrance on Sunday 13th November 2016 starting at the Memorial Hall at approximately 10.50am. A printable copy of the Order of Service is also attached.
The village hall is a valuable asset to the whole village, and the committee who manage it perform outstandingly to keep it operational. Without a solid committee the whole enterprise could fold, and I don’t think anyone in Charfield would want that to happen. Please give some thought to whether you could help in this regard.
“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 advised of a large slow load moving through the area on Sunday 24th July. National Grid will be moving a transformer from Avonmouth to Iron Acton but for reasons of weight limits this will include a journey up and down the M5. A map with timings is included [link].
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.
