Church Hill PACT – November Meeting Notes

Today I attended the Church Hill PACT meeting to hear from the community, Borough Councillors, police and one of our County Councillors, Tom Baker-Price.

Cllr Baker-Price reported that Sandhurst Close is due for resurfacing in the next financial year, which is great news for residents there.

Cllr Pat Witherspoon updated everyone on works around the play area near Northleach Close, which is to be updated and have its fencing improved along with some work to the pool there.

The police reported action taken around abandoned cars and that they are dealing with concerns raised about youths skateboarding on the roads in traffic, putting themselves and others at risk.

The next meeting will be on 6th December, and then next year the meetings will be moved to a bi-monthly footing. This is because not enough issues are being brought forward and attendance at these meetings by the public is low.

So I do urge everyone in Church Hill to make use of these meetings to bring up concerns about their area so that the councillors, police and their partners can work on them right away.

Thanks to Church Hill Big Local Partnership & St Andrews Church for Half Term Film Fun

I would like to thank the Church Hill Big Local Partnership in conjunction with St. Andrews Church for putting on a fantastic screening of Moana for the local children during half term. My eldest daughter loved the experience, especially the free popcorn. It was great to see so many people turn up.

The community in Church Hill is very lucky to have both the Church Hill Big Local Partnership, who do great work all year round, and St Andrews Church who run The Way Café and actively engage with the local community. The volunteers for each organisation are a credit to Church Hill and the town.
