The Parish Council held its annual meeting on 10th May where Gordon Rogers was re-elected chairman and Martin Elliff was returned as vice-chairman.
Peter Rose continues to lead for the council on the revision of the Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) while Steve Brown looks after plans for the development of the Community Hub. Sally Duff liaises with village organisations and is investigating a scheme to revitalize The Pound, a small piece of land off the High Street.
Meanwhile the search continues for two people to fill vacancies on the council to play a part in guiding the future direction of the village and easing the burden on existing members.
The chairman said: “This is our community and it’s up to villagers to have their say and play a role in how Long Wittenham will progress in the years ahead. We would welcome people from the Saxons Heath and Westfield as these areas are not currently represented on the council. The job is not onerous and involves devoting some time each week to council business and attendance at the monthly meetings.”
The vice-chairman said: “We would in particular like to see a broader range of people on the council so that the views of younger residents in the village are better represented.”
