Your Village. Your Future. Your Opinion

On Saturday 9th November between 12.00 and 14.00 in the Church, the Parish Council will be holding a drop-in session for village residents aged between 14 and 25. We will chat about the role of the Parish Council, the possibility of creating a Neighbourhood Development Plan, the village website and the Robert Pleydell Educational Charity.

It will be an information and listening session, asking if and how younger residents want to become involved in village initiatives that effect the future of Ampney Crucis.
