Resignation: Councillor Joy Maisey

At its meeting on 4 January 2022 the Parish Council formally accepted the resignation of Cllr Joy Maisey, who joined the Council in January 2019.

The Chairman, Richard Coates writes, "It was with some sadness that I received a letter from Joy outlining her intention to resign from the Council for personal reasons.

"She has served us extremely well particularly being the spokesperson for Hill Wootton after Cllr Moore’s resignation. She did say she felt her appointment might only be temporary until a more permanent Hill Wootton representative could be found and with Cllr Elsy now on board she feels the time is right to devote herself to family and other pursuits.

"So on behalf of the Council, I would like to wish her well and thank her for the enthusiastic support she has given over the past three years. Her initiative in organising the competition for the most bee friendly garden is one I am sure we will continue. I for one will miss her cheery smile and infectious sense of humour!"

New Councillor: David Elsy

The Parish Council co-opted David Elsy, of Hill Wootton, at its meeting on 6 October 2020.

Cllr David Elsy

There were four candidates for the vacancy, which was triggered by the death of the former Chairman, Colin Smith, on 27 June this year.

The co-option of Cllr Elsy means the Council now has a full compliment of 8 Councillors and the Council looks forward to working with Cllr Elsy.

Announcement: Colin Smith

It is with real sadness that I have to inform you that Parish Councillor and former Chairman, Colin Smith, died on 27 June 2020.

We will all miss him as a friend, with his energy, enthusiasm, acumen and not forgetting ironic sense of humour.

The Parish Council will be the poorer without him and our thoughts and prayers go out to Jill, Adam, Leo and their wider family at this sad time.

Richard Coates
Chairman

Cllr Dennis Eassom resigns

Dennis Eassom

On 3 September 2019 Cllr Dennis Eassom resigned from the Parish Council because he is moving away from the Parish. Mr Eassom was first elected to the Council in May 1999, but was an active member of the community for many years, working variously on the Village Hall Committee and Sports Club.

The Parish Council expressed its gratitude to Mr Eassom for his many years of service and wished he and Iris much happiness in their new home and life.
