Can you help to support St John's Church?

St John's Ashton Hayes has plans in place and great ambitions for the future but the changes it needs and would like to make are not cheap. It has already raised well over £100,000 from within our community but is still well short of its target. Would you please help?

Every donation received will help us move nearer to our target and enable us to provide this much needed community facility whilst securing the future of our much loved church building.

93% of voters support Neighbourhood Plan in referendum

Thank you to all of you who voted on Thursday 4 May in the Referendum. The turnout was 28.8% and the percentage of those voting who voted in favour of the Plan was 93.5% [230 votes]

We really do appreciate you having made time and taken the effort to vote. The next step will be for the Council to receive a report on the plan following this referendum and if so minded approve it. This will see the Neighbourhood Plan “made” and taken account of when future planning proposals and applications are being considered.

My thanks to all  those who at different times have worked so hard on this plan and to those who supported the team through all the consultation stages of this process.

Jane Colville…. Chair of the Parish Council
