Santa Needs You

November 17th, 2017

Santa Tours is something of an iconic event on the town, with children being lucky enough to enjoy a visit from Santa on such a big night! However this event could not take place without a team of 21 volunteers, who selflessly give a couple of hours of their time on Christmas Eve. If your children have enjoyed this event in the past and you or someone you know would like to take part, so other children can enjoy the magic too, then please call 01325 300600 and ask for Rachel or e-mail at All volunteers receive either a £20 Tesco voucher or a bottle of spirits.

Town Council Budget Survey – Have Your Say

November 15th, 2017

The Town Council is currently in the process of setting its Revenue and Capital Budgets for the 2018/19 financial year, and wishes to seek the views of the local community on our spending plans and what your priorities are for the coming years.

We would particularly welcome the views of local tax payers on the Council services that are most and least important to you, and whether there are any new services or initiatives that you would like to see the Council make investment in.

Your views are very important to us and will be used to help to inform the Council’s service and financial planning both next year and into the future.

We have developed a short survey to formally record your views and we would encourage local residents to take five minutes to complete this questionnaire.

The results of the survey, including any specific comments made or concerns raised, will be reported to the Council before it meets to set the final 2018/19 Budget in January 2018.

You can access the survey by clicking on the following link:

A summary of the Council’s current financial situation and the draft 2018/19 budget proposals can be found on the Council website at
