Following distribution of the leaflet to invite volunteers we are delighted to have had a group of residents come forward to offer their time, knowledge and skills.Three Councillors will sit on the Steering Group in order to facilitate the project, and we start off with eleven volunteers and a handful of ‘reserves’ too.Many, many thanks to all those who’ve volunteered.
Members of the Town Council and volunteers have started delivering the leaflet which tells the community about the Neighbourhood Plan. You should get yours within the next few days. If you haven’t had a leaflet by January 17th then get it touch with your address and we’ll make sure you get one. We’ll leave a few leaflets in public places, shops, the library and so on for those who work or visit Hingham but don’t live here. The development of the plan will affect anyone who comes to Hingham regularly.
