BANK CLOSURES

 

Following the announcement of the closure of the Billingshurst 

branches of both NatWest & Lloyds Banks, representatives

of each bank were invited to attend Council meetings where

members of the public were also invited to listen and ask

questions.  Representatives of NatWest Bank attended a

meeting on Wednesday 10 January and the report from that

meeting can be read HERE


 

Lloyds Bank representatives were due to attend a meeting with

Councillors and residents on 18 January but unfortunately

cancelled giving only 2 hours notice, thus giving  the Council

no time to postpone or cancel the meeting.  Around 30

residents were in attendance and stayed to give Councillors

their thoughts.  A copy of the meeting notes from January 18th

can be viewed HERE

 

 

A meeting was recently held with representatives of Lloyds

Bank where comments and concerns from residents were

passed on.  Lloyds have subsequently responded to the

points raised and a copy of their letter can be viewed HERE

A REFRESHMENT KIOSK FOR

 STATION ROAD GARDENS ?

 

Following a suggestion from a local resident,

the Council has agreed to advertise for an operator to

provide light refreshments in Station Road Gardens,

on a seasonal basis, for a one year trial.

 

 

Councillors concur that it could be very welcome attraction

for visitors to the award-winning gardens.

The Council is now inviting expressions of interest from

would-be operators, who could provide a high quality

facility to compliment the popular site.

 

 

If anyone is interested or knows someone who might be

interested, please contact the Clerk for an informal discussion

clerk@billingshurst.gov.uk

 COMMUNITY

 SPEEDWATCH

 


You may remember that last year, the

Parish Council appealed for local

residents to come forward and form a

Community Speedwatch Group. 

 

 

A number of people came forward but

they are always looking for more

volunteers.  If speeding vehicles in our

local area is something that bothers you,

could you spare some time to join

the group?

  

 

Members of the group say .....

 

Please, don't think this is an "old people's"

pastime or you have to be retired, the CSW

teams are open to everyone of all ages. It only

takes up a very small amount of time at

irregular intervals of no more than two hours

per session. You can regulate your availability

yourself and turn out as much or as little as

you like.

 

 

    To find out more about the

    Community Speedwatch scheme,

 Would you find it helpful to have more information when there is a Power Cut?

Call 105 

 

Recently launched, 105 is a new three-digit number that people can call to report or get information about power cuts.
