Following enquiries from a resident at the end of last year the Clerk and the Councillors met with a representative from Konect Buses to discuss the possibility of having a bus stop at the top end of Tun’s Road. We are delighted to announce these bus stops are now in place and we have been informed these are now operational.
This will help those living at the top of road to access the bus route without having to walk further into Necton to the bus stop near the shops. The bus stop is outside the Community Centre for travel into Necton and the other is by the turning into the Costa and C0-Op site for travel out of Necton. The official bus stop signs are in place and the bus can be boarded or alighted from these stops.
Hopefully these stops will prove beneficial for those residents nearby.
As Necton Parish Council is committed to improving our Green credentials the newly formed Green sub- committee recently met and agreed some projects to take forward. There are some short term projects along with some other longer term ones. These will be reviewed and progress updated on a 6 monthly basis at the Parish Council meetings. A link to the projects is below.
Please remember a sub – committee is permitted to have members of the public sitting on it so, if you are interested in joining then please let the Clerk know.
Councillor Frank Stopp has sadly resigned from his position as Councillor due to a house move. We would like to pass on our thanks to Frank for all the work and support he has provided to the Council and Necton and wish him the Best of Luck in his new home.
This means we now have a vacancy for a Parish Councillor. If this is something you may be interested in please contact either the Clerk or any of the Councillors for further information.
Liz Goddard our new caretaker started today. I’m sure you would like to join us in welcoming Liz to the team. No doubt you will see her around as she helps in keeping the village tidy and well maintained.
Liz is a keen gardener as well so no doubt we should be seeing all her efforts flowering during the coming summer months.
Welcome Liz !!
