Stage is set for Parish Assembly

THIS year’s Parish Assembly for Battle and Netherfield will take place on May 15 at Battle Memorial Hall.

Council chairman Richard Bye said: “As always we will be circulating our Annual Report to every household a couple of weeks before the assembly, which will also include details of this year’s event.

“At the assembly itself, in addition to the town council report, county and district councillors will also speak about matters of interest to the town and will be members of the Question Time panel.”

Cllr Bye added: “This format has worked very well in recent years but its success depends partly on having some notice of the questions to be raised, so if there are particular issues which residents wish to discuss it would be helpful if the town clerk could be notified prior to the assembly.”

An innovation at last year’s Assembly was the provision of table displays by a number of groups and organisations.

Anyone who would like to take advantage of this opportunity to publicise and promote the work of their group should contact Peter Mills, the clerk of Battle Town Council, in order to make the arrangements.
