The culmination of nearly two years hard work by a devoted band of enthusiasts resulted in the launch of the Village Design Statement in May. The Keene Hall was set out with an impressive display of photos, maps and charts to reveal the detailed research that has gone into the production of a highly professional document printed in full colour. The views of residents were consulted at every stage as all aspects of the village scene were examined.. The Statement has received the approval of the Borough Council and is now adopted as the guidance instrument for all future development of the village. Thanks were expressed to all the team working on the project and copies will be available to all parishioners.
