Our Parish Plan outlined the need for the following action:
"The Parish Council will continue to secure representation from the four communities and will seek further ways to improve its association with them for example by rotating the venue of Parish meetings."
Future Parish Council meetings will be held at Old Sarum Community Centre, Hampton Park (Greentrees School) and Laverstock at River Bourne Community Farm on a rolling programmed basis.
The next Parish Council meeting will be held on Monday 20th June at Old Sarum Community Centre at 7:30pm.
This is our Annual Meeting , Residents are welcome to attend.
