A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF WITTERSHAM VOICES
A warm welcome to the Wittersham VOICES website! I hope you will visit it often and encourage others to do so as well.
In launching this site we, on the VOICES Steering Committee, hope that you, the Wittersham Community, will be able to see how we have endeavoured to interpret your ideas, concerns and hopes so that our wonderful Parish and Village can move forwards, as it inevitably will, in a way that benefits us all.
We have tried to include all the relevant material we used to compile the final Plan together with the wider background you might like to be aware of. The Questionnaires we used for the Shop and the General Survey, together with the responses we received, are included so you can make your own assessment of the strength of feeling within the Community on the various topics raised.
You will realise, I'm sure, that many people have put in considerable effort to produce the Plan – which is probably better described as a “Wish List” at this stage – which is now in the hands of the Parish Council. I, as Chairman of the Steering Committee, am very grateful indeed for all the contributions that have been made by individuals, organisations and the Discussion Groups. I am very optimistic that our findings will be taken seriously and will ensure Wittersham, both Village and Parish, will remain a wonderful place in which to live.
The Parish Council will be considering the recommendations in the Plan over the coming months and will decide which items can be pursued to advantage and which are not possible, either through cost or practicality. Their decisions will be recorded as they are made so that everyone is kept up to date with progress.
The Community Led Plan is, as I have often said, a living document which is intended to take us on several years. It will be monitored carefully and amended as required. We hope to keep you up to date with progress.
Feedback on what we have tried to do, and where we may not have satisfied you, would be very welcome, so if you have anything to say I would ask you not to hesitate to get in touch with me or one of the Steering Committee.
It has been a privilege for me to have been allowed to Chair VOICES. I have met so many people who have been helpful, encouraging and enthusiatsic. Thank you all.
