20th November 2015 - Parish Council thanks local charities

At its latest meeting on Tuesday, 17th November, the Parish Council decided that it would like to thank the many local residents who serve as Trustees on our local charities and thank them for their careful management of their assets in compliance with the Charity Commission requirements. We would like to thank them for the way in which they have supported our two villages for over 100 years, and still do so. We would like to thank them publicly for their help to those in difficulty in the parish. We would like to thank them for the thousands of pounds they have spent in supporting institutions like the Memorial Hall, the football club, the village school, the allotments society, the public playing fields, the Parish Council and our local churches. We would like to express our deep regret for the way they have recently as institutions and individual trustees been hounded by obsessive and disproportionate legalistic quibbles that have caused stress and has prevented or hampered them carrying out work for the community.

Yours sincerely,
Richard Lees,
Chairman (Kirby Cane & Ellingham Parish Council)

New, elected parish council, May 2017

For the first time in over 20 years we had a contested election for Kirby Cane and Ellingham Parish Council. All elected councillors would like to thank the residents for voting and for the magnificent turnout, which is unique in Parish Council history! It is great to have our parish council back from South Norfolk Council control and to have local councillors with a democratic mandate.

Thank you from:

Richard Lees,
