The annual meeting of Berkswich Parish took place on May 2nd, 2017.
Members of the public who attended heard from Mrs. Lynne Sandy who outlined plans for the Best Kept Village Competition 2017. In 2016, the hard-working BKV volunteers were rewarded for their efforts by winning 3rd place in this hard fought and prestigious competition. As other commitments are now limiting the work of the volunteers, Mrs. Sandy called upon residents of Walton on the Hill to look after the verges in front of their properties. The Parish Council are once again supporting the group with a grant to fund the purchase of plants and equipment.
During 2016, the Parish Council was also pleased to offer a grant to Berkswich Good Neighbours Scheme. Mrs. Elaine Lyne, addressed the meeting and explained how the group offers short-term support to local people who may need assistance with light housework or lifts to hospital appointments.
