    Improving the Playground
    The Parish Council’s sub-committee - set up to consider how the money from the developers of England’s Field earmarked for improvements to the playground is to be spent - has met two playground installers to discuss how the playground might be improved and awaits their proposals. When the proposals have been received, the Parish Council will probably hold a public consultation about them. Watch this space.

    Improving Transport Infrastructure in Bodenham
    The Parish Council has also received money from the same source for improvements to transport infrastructure, and, as above, has set up a sub-committee to consider how the money is to be spent, and, as above, too, parishioners will be consulted before any decisions are made. Watch this space as well.

    Annual Audit
    The annual audit of the Parish Council’s accounts has concluded. Electors and their representatives have the right to inspect and make copies of the audit documents and the external auditor’s report and certificate of completion. Contact the Parish Clerk, if you wish to do so.
