Preston Parish Neighbourhood Plan Referendum


The Preston Parish Neighbourhood Plan has been through all the required consultations and last August went to the Independent Examiner. The Examiner recommended that the Neighbourhood Plan should go to referendum, subject to his suggested modifications being made. The Plan was amended to include these modifications and at their meeting on December 19th, the NHDC cabinet of District Councillors agreed that the Plan should go to referendum. The date of the referendum will be announced on Friday 7 February.

More information, including copies of The Neighbourhood Plan, The Examiner's Final Report and associated documents can be found on the Neighbourhood Plan website

2019 Open Gardens Photographs

To bring some spring colour into the parish a selection of the photographs from Preston Gardens Open and Flower Festival 2019 is now available to view in the Galleries.

We are planning a second showing of the complete set of the photographs sometime in January or February. It will be free, at the Village Hall with tea, coffee and shortbread. As with the June 2019 showing – the photos will be projected on the big screen in a repeating loop so come along at any point and stay as long as you like without missing the start (or end).

To help us plan and so we can keep you posted with the details of day and time, please register your interest with Liz – phone: 433859, use the contact form (and we will forward your message) or leave a note in the porch at Rose Cottage on Chequers Lane.

Christmas Tree Lighting 2019

A big Thank You to everyone who helped set up the tree, provide refreshments, and entertain us with carols and festive song. Nina and Louis won the drawing and poetry competitions at the primary school and did the honours of turning on the lights.

You may have noticed the lights were off for a few days and now look different – thank you to the tree team for turning out to replace the faulty set of lights.

Instead of the barrel planter used in previous years we now have a tractor wheel rim! A very special thank you to David and Jane Clark who have kindly donated it to replace the perished planter. At short notice, they hunted around their barns until they found something to use. It looks great, recycles an unused piece of equipment and is appropriate for our rural setting.
