Come along to the Uplyme Village Hall between 2 and 6 pm on Saturday 31st January, when the Uplyme Neighbourhood Plan Group will be presenting a number of displays about its findings so far, and asking for your opinions on how the village should develop. If you don’t take part, there may not be another chance for years to influence what the parish will look like for you and your family in the future – so speak up!

You’ll be able to see the draft results of the affordable housing survey – which indicates a need for more rented affordable housing in the parish, as well as a definite interest in self-build initiatives. We will also be presenting the results of the second questionnaire, which asked for more specific views on the topics most people felt were important.

We already have representatives of several local groups, but we are calling on all local community, youth, social, sporting, health and religious organisations to consider taking a free table at the meeting, to encourage parishioners to find out what they do, when they meet, how they raise funds; do they need more members or help organising activities etc.

There’re a lot of activities going on in Uplyme, but not everyone knows about them all, so this would be a good opportunity for both sides to make contact. Call John Garland on 01297 444120 if you are interested.
