East Harlsey Parish Council needs a new Parish Councillor
Following a resignation, a vacancy exists for a fifth Councillor to join the team. This is a voluntary role. Please speak to any member of the Parish Council if you are interested in finding out more about the role. If you don’t know one of the existing Councillors, please contact the chairman, Nick Barnard, on 01609 882282 or via e-mail on nickbarnard4@gmail.com. Applicants should have been resident in the parish for at least twelve months. A new person could be co-opted to the Council soon, or an election takes place if there is more than one candidate. The successful candidate will serve on the Parish Council until the next Parish Council elections in May 2019.

East Harlsey has a new Parish Clerk - Arnell Harris has been appointed Clerk to the Parish Council. She can be contacted at eastharlseyparishcouncil@gmail.com

The Village Hall conducted a survey in May on usage of the Play Area. Thank you to all who responded. This really helped in applying for grant funding for new equipment there. In fact a substantial grant has now been awarded towards this project from the Small Grants Scheme of Hambleton District Council. Thank you. And we had news recently that we have a £9000 grant from the Lottery Awards for All.

The latest edition of the Parish Newsletter and the Minutes of a recent Parish Council meeting can be found by following the links on the Parish Council page. You can also find a useful guide to local services there.
