Grapevine Launch

The Parish Council has launched a Parish Newsletter under the title Galleywood Grapevine. The four page sheet is printed on glossy paper with colour illustrations. It is to be distributed free, throughout the Parish, by volunteers. In the introduction Chairman, Janette Potter writes: ‘The object of this often talked of periodical is to provide information and news about the village, the Community and the efforts by the Parish Council, on behalf of parishioners, to improve services.’

The first issue carried an appeal from community policeman, PC James Gilchrist for anonymous reporting under the National Crime Stoppers Campaign. Phil Spencer was photographed receiving a specially designed Rose bowl in recognition of his many years of dedicated work as transport manager for Galleywood Community Care Association.
