Parish Newsletter – Spring 2020

The Parish Council puts out a quarterly newsletter, sharing advice from organisations we work with and stories about what is happening across the parish. The spring 2020 edition is available below.

A lot has happened in the few weeks since the Newsletter went to print which we would like to update you on.

Meetings of the Parish Council are not happening in person and it was not possible to hold a meeting in March. Councils are now able to hold meetings online for the first time. We are working on doing this in a way that is practical and still gives all parishioners the opportunity to contribute. The first remote meeting of Tatenhill & Rangemore Parish Council will be held on 28th April 2020

The event scheduled for 2nd May in Prince’s Wood has been postponed. Hopefully it will be possible to rearrange this event for later in the summer.

The National Forest Walking Festival is not going ahead in the usual way this year, but hopefully you will have a chance to enjoy the local area at your own leisure. John Everitt, Chief Executive of the National Forest Company, said: “People who live in the Forest are often fortunate to have a choice of accessible woodlands and open spaces available for their daily exercise as encouraged by government. As long as it is easily accessible from your home, and you take care to observe social distancing, do take advantage of the benefits of being outdoors in the National Forest for your physical and mental well-being.”

Thank you to everyone who has given us advice on the roads in the parish. Each year the Parish Council organises an Annual Parish meeting and this year was an opportunity to kick off a second phase of traffic calming. Whether it will be safe to hold this meeting is unclear, we are expecting to hear more about this in coming weeks and will relay information to you as we receive it.

Contributions are welcome and can be sent to clerk@tandrpc.org.uk. The newsletter normally carries a list of upcoming events in the parish and we would be happy to include news of an event you are planning once this is possible again.
