Histon & Impington Parish Council staff are continuing to work to support our community. The Recreation Ground is being maintained, facilities and open spaces across the village are also being checked and maintained, and the office team is contributing to the COVID19 volunteer response across the village.
Usually in May, the Parish Council is busy preparing for the Annual Parish Meeting and the Annual General Meeting. These meetings look back at the previous years’ projects and spending as well as the policies, Standing Orders and Financial Regulations of the Council. The AGM also elects Councillors to key roles for the coming year – including Chairman, Vice-Chairman etc.
In April, the Coronavirus Act 2020 was passed, and associated regulations published, and removed the need for the Annual Meetings. The regulations also formalised the use of virtual meetings. Following this guidance, we will not be holding the APM or AGM this year, but will review the policies in due course as part of our regular cycle of meetings.
Denis Payne will therefore continue as Chairman, and Yvonne Murray as Vice-Chairman. They, and the office team, welcome mails and phone calls as always from residents on any matters – we’re still here to make a difference!
