The Parish Council has set up a small working group to look into the idea of erecting some interpretive panels in the Parish to celebrate the rich history of this area. These could be similar to the boards in Stroud or Painswick and we might locate one in each of the villages, although we are open to suggestions. If you have any ideas of items that should be included in these panels or know of some interesting and unusual stories about the area where you live we would love to hear from you. Get in touch via Christine/Jacky at the Parish centre.
As you know, one of our strategic priorities this year, and indeed, in years to come, is to ensure that streets in Chalford are easier to navigate for visitors, newcomers, and even long-time residents! We have already started looking for streets which don’t currently have name-plates at all, even though the name of the street is known, and we will start with those. So if you are aware of any streets which don’t have signs at both ends, please let us know. We are also interested, for our next tranche of work, in those streets where the names are in doubt – and there seems to be a surprising number of those! We would also like to hear from you about those too.
It would be really helpful, when you get in touch, if you could include a little map to show which streets you feel need name-plates. You can email email@example.com, or if you prefer, drop your suggestions into the Parish Centre office. Thank you in advance for your help on this one.
